NEWSLETTER FOR February 2017

Jerry Wilkinson, President


Our February program will be on our usual second Monday of the month at the Key Largo Library Community Room in the Trade Winds Shopping Center at mile marker 101.5.  So please mark your calendars for Monday, February 13th at 7pm and pass the word along to others who may have an interest.

This month our program will be a presentation on the History of Marathon given by Jerry Wilkinson.  The presentation is based on Jerry’s new book for the Images of America series, Marathon: The Middle Keys.  Copies of the book will be available at the meeting.

Last month's program was a bio-documentary short film entitled “The Life and Times of Dr. Henry Perrine” by visual artist and filmmaker Steve DeGroodt.  We had thirty-nine 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 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.  All book sales help the Historical Society continue to keep our local history alive.

Membership renewals were due last month.  Thank you to those who have already renewed.  Our membership box will be at the front desk at our meeting so we can assist you with your renewal. You will also find information below about how to renew your membership through the mail.  We now send an electronic version of our newsletter.  If you would like to receive the email version, make sure you include your email address when you renew or send a request to Erin Muir at erindmuir@gmail.com.
