The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, June 21, 6:30 pm at the Federal Point History Center, 1121-A North Lake Park Blvd., adjacent to Carolina Beach Town Hall.
In lieu of our usual program, we will enjoy our annual summer potluck starting at 6:30PM. Please bring a favorite dish to share with the group. If the weather behaves you might also want to bring a lawn chair. This is always a wonderful time to visit with old friends, but also a great time to introduce new people. PLEASE bring a friend or neighbor who might be interested in joining.
Last Month’s Meeting Author Lois Wheatley of the new book Images of America: Carolina Beach talked about many of the vintage pictures in her new book published by Arcadia Press in May. A number of the people who shared family pictures attended and added commentary, including Charles (Tommy) Greene, Judy and Byron Moore, Doris Bame and Jay and Juanita Winner. Particularly interesting were the pictures that Arcadia rejected as not —good? enough, many of which looked better than some of the ones they accepted. NOTE: We have signed copies of Lois’s book available in the History Center Gift Shop. In May we also presented awards to the two young people winning our annual local history essay contest. Nicole Creech and Harley Preik accompanied by their parents, grandparents, and siblings read their essays on the Federal Point Lighthouse aloud. Each received a gift card and their choice of a book from our gift shop. Harley chose Lighthouse Ghosts and Nicole chose A Tribute to North Carolina’s Lighthouses.
They are both smart and articulate kids.
