NEWSLETTER October 2011

Dear Members and Friends,

Next Meeting: Thursday, 27th October at 6:00pm
Museum of the Bahamas Historical Society

"A Tribute to the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire"

The latest image we have of the members of IODE

The IODE Headquarters was purpose built in 1952 as an entertainment centre with a stage, dance floor and kitchen. Kindly, in 1976 the IODE donated the building to The Bahamas Historical Society and we created a historical museum in it.

Jim Lawlor will give a brief overview of the history of the IODE.

The IODE badge cast imperial foundations in metal, with a crown symbolising the monarchy, the Union Jack flag for Britain and empire, and a seven-pointed star, one point for each of the major territories of the empire.

Past Presidents of the IODE - Una Sawyer will describe the activities of the IODE, and Jane Lloyd the involvement with the war graves.

Refreshments will be served after the presentation.

We have decided to invite cultural groups to perform in the hall which not only promotes culture and showcases the museum but at the same time raises much needed revenue for the improvements to the building. The Nassau Chamber Ensemble presents an afternoon of light classical music to be held at the Bahamas Historical Society Museum on Sunday, 20th November at 3pm - Tickets for this event would be available soon at the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Ticket price for adults $20.00, and for students with ID $10.00.

Kind regards,

Jim Lawlor,
President.
