| NEWSLETTER November
Last Meeting – At our October meeting, “Peanuts” Taylor led us on a trip down Memory Lane, reminiscing about the era when nightclubs with live entertainment and traditional Bahamian artists fascinated locals and visitors alike. This talk was accompanied by a slide show which reminded us of an oft neglected aspect of our culture. Thank you, Peanuts!
Membership Renewals / 2008 Journal - As I am writing these lines, my study space is filled with envelopes, address labels and boxes of this year’s Journal of the Bahamas Historical Society. Some of you will receive this newsletter inside one of those envelopes, accompanied by said Journal. However, the Journal is reserved for members and subscribers whose dues are current. So if you haven’t renewed your membership for this year yet, please fill in the attached membership form (or if you are receiving the electronic version, print it here: http://bahamashistoricalsociety.com/applic.pdf) and return it to the Society with your payment. Please support the Bahamas Historical Society, and we’ll get your copy of the Journal to you a.s.a.p. Thank you for your continued support!
Next Meeting - The last meeting of the year is traditionally more casual, and a good occasion for members to socialise and start off the holiday season. Also, Anne and Jim Lawlor’s new book The Harbour Island Story will be available for sale – and you can get your copy signed by the authors. An excellent opportunity to do your Christmas shopping early!
For those of you who read this newsletter outside of the Bahamas, the book is also available on Amazon.com.
A Piece Of Our Own History - This is the last newsletter of 2008, and in 2009, the Bahamas Historical Society turns 50. In light of this, I would like to thanks Mrs. Potter from St. Andrew’s school, who donated an old newspaper page to the Society today, which contains one important aspect of our history that I am happy to share with you!
