I've been working on the web site. What's new?
The volunteer calendar is now on the site under "HANDOUTS", toward the bottom of the page under a green banner. You can check to see where we need help. Check out the vacancies and see where you can lend a hand. Send an email to us at Roots.Branches.Volusia@gmail.com and let us know that you are interested.
Bob Weaver is leading a new project we call THE BRICK WALL PROJECT. Check out the request forms which you will find the forms on the HANDOUTS page of the web site, just above the green banner toward the bottom. Fill one out and send it in if there is anything you think we can help you with.
I'm working on posting board and general meeting minutes, beginning from this month's minutes and working back to the beginning of the Society. It is interesting to read those minutes to see some of the projects and problems the Society has had through the years.
Also posted is the flyer for the Florida Historical Society, 2013 Annual Meeting and Symposium. This year they will cruise on the Carnival Sensation. The cruise is called "500 Years of La Florida:Sailing in the path of Discovery!" The cost is relatively cheap, $500 per person, double occupancy, includes cruise, food, featured tours and symposium registration, no taxes, fees or port charges. The Symposium will consist of Paper Presentations, Round Table Discussions, Historic Tours in Nassau, FHS Awards Luncheon and more. The return from the Bahamas will follow the path taken by Ponce de Leon to Florida.
