NEWSLETTER FOR March 2020
Jerry Wilkinson, President
Our March program will be our usual second Monday of the month at the Key Largo Library Community Room in the Trade Winds Shopping Plaza at mile marker 101.5. So please mark your calendars for Monday, March 9th at 7 pm and pass the word along to others who may have an interest.
This month our program will be a viewing of “An Interview at Old Settler’s Park”, a video created by HPSUK. In this video HPSUK president Jerry Wilkinson interviews long-time Keys residents Everette Albury and Charles Louis Pellicier about how life used to be when they were growing up in Tavernier.
Last month's program was a photo presentation entitled “Bridges of the Keys” given by HPSUK Vice President Loralea Carrera. From the first railroad bridges to the bridges of today, Carrera’s “then and now” photo format examined the spans that have provided critical connections between our island chain for over one hundred years. We had 95 in attendance.
The books “Images of Key Largo” and “Images of Islamorada” will be available at our meeting for $22 each. We also have copies of “The Shaw Diary” for $15 and K Wilkinson’s book “It Had to Be You” for $15. If you would like them mailed someplace, just add $3 to the listed price to cover the cost of shipping. As a benefit, of membership paid members receive $1 off all book purchases! All book sales help the Historical Society continue to keep our local history alive.
This month we are pleased to welcome new members Jeanne Askins of Key Largo and Jane and Wally Broege of Islamorada. The Society thanks you for joining our efforts.
