NEWSLETTER FOR MAY 2018
Jerry Wilkinson, President
Our May program will be our usual second Monday of the month at the Key Largo Library Community Room in the Trade Winds Shopping Plaza at mile marker 101.5. So please mark your calendars for Monday, May 14th at 7 pm and pass the word along to others who may have an interest.
This month our program will be a presentation titled Key West’s Duval Street given by HPSUK President Jerry Wilkinson. Based on the book of the same name co-authored by Wilkinson and Laura Albritton, the presentation covers the origins and development of Key West’s legendary thoroughfare from 1820-1960. Highlights will include famous buildings such as Key West's Oldest House, St. Paul's Church, the Southernmost House, the Strand Theater, the San Carlos Institute, and La Concha Hotel, along with fabled bars like Sloppy Joe's and the Bull & Whistle. The book will also be available for sale at the meeting.
Last month's program was a video titled A Sentimental Journey—History of Ocean Reef by the Ocean Reef Historical Society. We had forty-one in attendance.
The books “Images of Key Largo” and “Images of Islamorada” will be available at our meeting for $22 each. We also have copies of the hardcover “Images of Marathon: The Middle Keys” for $25 and K Wilkinson’s book “It Had to Be You” for $15. If you would like them mailed someplace, just add $3 to the listed price to cover the cost of shipping. All book sales help the Historical Society continue to keep our local history alive.
