NEWSLETTER FOR May 2017

Jerry Wilkinson, President

 

Our May 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, May 8th at 7 pm and pass the word along to others who may have an interest.

This month our program will be a presentation on The Rich History of Indian Key given by Brad Bertelli, local historian and curator of the Florida Keys History and Discovery Center.  The 11-acre island located on the oceanside between Upper Matecumbe and Lower Matecumbe was once a thriving wrecking village and county seat of Dade County.   

Last month's program was a viewing of interviews with Captain George Hommell, filmed in 1996, and Alonzo Cothron, filmed in 1985.  We had sixteen 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.

The Historical Preservation Society of the Upper Keys’ Facebook page has some great new photos added by HPSUK VP Loralea Carrera.  Make sure to check out the photos and like our page!
