NEWSLETTER MAY/JUNE 2006

NEXT MEETING: Our next meeting is scheduled for 6:00pm on 8th June at which Dr. John Burton, Associate Professor and Director of American Studies, DePaul University, Chicago, will speak on “To Sell Again”: Economic Life of Nineteenth-Century San Salvador. Please plan to attend what promises to be another interesting meeting.


PRESENTATION: The new President presents an antique print of Nassau Harbour to the old President for the Museum.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: The Annual General Meeting was held on 27th April with fourteen persons in attendance. We have some major changes at the Society. We are pleased to announce that Mr. Stephen Aranha has been elected as President to succeed Mr. David Cates who has retired from the post and did not seek re-election. Mr. Cates served as President from 1999. We congratulate Mr. Aranha and wish him every success. Miss June Maura was elected to First Vice-President.

Mr. Jerome Pinder has retired as Treasurer and has been succeeded in that post by Mr. David Cates who has also holds the post of Second Vice-President. Lady Isaacs and Mr. Jim Lawlor were re-elected as Trustees. We thank Mr. Pinder for his two years of service and for computerising our accounting system.

During the meeting, members discussed the need to revamp the old committee system currently used by the Society. It is envisaged that instead of having a number of committees it would be better to have one larger Executive Management Committee. We will provide additional details in a future Newsletter.


Fashion Parade: Models on the catwalk at the Nassau Yacht Club.

SPRING LUNCH: The annual Spring Lunch and Fashion Show on 2nd May was well attended and highly successful. We thank Mrs. Granger, Lady Isaacs, Mrs. Beryl Strachan, Mrs. Joan Clarke, the models and the other members who helped to organise this event.

SEPTEMBER MEETING: Our September meeting is tentatively scheduled for the 14th of the month; Dr. Alfred Pugh will speak on early Baptist history in the Bahamas. Dr. Pugh, author of Pioneer Preachers in Paradise: The Legacies of George Liele, Prince Williams and Thomas Paul in Jamaica, The Bahamas and Haiti, will be in Nassau as part of a Baptist Heritage Tour. More details will be announced in the Newsletter.

SUMMER RECESS: The Museum will be closed during the months of July and August.

VOLUNTEERS: We say a special “Thank you” to our team of volunteers for their service to The Bahamas Historical Society over the past year. We deeply appreciate their commitment.

MEMBERSHIP DUES: Members are encouraged to renew their memberships at this time. Early renewal saves the Society the cost for copying and mailing the notices.
