Museum of the Bahamas Historical Society
Shirley Street & Elizabeth Avenue
Thursday, 6 December 2007 – 6:00 pm

As always, admission is free for members and the interested public.

Tropical Storm Noel – As a safety precaution, we had to call off our last meeting, where we were expecting Dr. Harold Munnings, author of Princess Margaret Hospital: The Story of a Bahamian Institution. We will inform you as soon as we have a new date scheduled.

Happy Holidays – The 2007/08 holiday season is fast approaching. It has become a tradition that the last meeting of the year is followed by a small reception including drinks and hors d’oeuvres. The success of this tradition depends very much on the support of our members. Please see if you can contribute something to this event, and let us know at info@bahamashistoricalsociety.com or call us at 324-3546.

Condolences – On behalf of all the members and friends of the Bahamas Historical Society, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to our Treasurer and Past-President David Cates and his family for the untimely death of his mother last month.

Get Well Wishes – Please join me in wishing our First Vice-President, Mr. Jim Lawlor, who will be undergoing surgery at Doctors Hospital this week, a quick recovery.

Congratulations – To the Aranha family, on the birth of Kayleigh Rebecca, the daughter of our President Stephen Aranha and his wife Suzanne. Kayleigh was born at Doctors Hospital on November 2nd, 2007.
