We’re looking forward to the Friends of the Outer Banks History Center annual membership meeting, and hosting a panel discussion Dare County in the 1930s: Decade of Determination, this Friday evening.   The program highlights our current exhibit of the same name.  I’ll be on the panel along with  Brian Edwards, professor of history at the College of the Albemarle; Jim Senter, independent researcher and Civilian Conservation Corps expert from Durham; and, John Havel, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse enthusiast from Raleigh.  To say we are excited about this topic is an understatement!   History Center curator KaeLi Schurr will moderate the program that will run from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

A short business meeting and presentation of this year’s Lois W. Bradshaw Volunteer of the Year Award follows at 5:00 p.m.  Afterwards, share light refreshments and view the exhibit from 5:30-6:30 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.  It’s always a good time when history lovers get together and swap stories.  Hope to see you there!
