President’s Message – Butch Bundy

Dear Members –

Hurricane Irma and the subsequent tornadoes have done their best to destroy Florida but the Longwood Historic Society has survived, damaged perhaps, but alive and resilient. The Bradlee-McIntyre House lost the front sign and a tree came down blocking the parking lot. Our good neighbors Sunner & Sunner had professionals come in and cut up the tree debris, moving it to the curb. The Historic Civic Center lost a rear window which has been boarded over. Both the Inside-Outside House and Civic Center are closed until Duke Energy can repair the low voltage issue affecting much of the Historic District. As time goes by, we may discover additional damage. Be assured, we will get estimates for all costs, so we can prioritize and schedule repairs as we can afford them.

THE QUARTERLY POT LUCK MEETING HAS BEEN RESCHULED to Sunday, September 24, 2017 with Lillian Selph back to continue the saga of Casselberry. The September 24 th meeting is also our Falling for Food potluck event and the Society will provide ham and turkey, rolls, butter and beverages. Bev Winesburgh is still without power and internet, so please RSVP your number of attendees to Donna Bundy at: MsTilePro@aol.com and sign up to bring a casserole, side item, salad or dessert, and, as always, potential new members are encouraged and welcome. Please join us as we recount and give thanks for the many blessings of 2017.

CAR SHOW CONCESSION BOOTH

The City cancelled the September Car Show so it is imperative that we have a successful event in October. Thanks to the Society members who return month after month to volunteer for the concession booth at the Longwood Car Show. We truly appreciate your efforts! Set up at 3:00 PM and the event is over at 8 pm. We always need 6 – 8 volunteers to get the job done right. Please email us at info@LongwoodHistoricalSociety.org or call Tom at 407-834-7220 if you can volunteer on Saturday, October 14th.
