Dorchester County Historical Society




Dear Members,

   The holidays are quickly approaching and our last membership meeting is Thursday, November 9th. This is our awards night and we will recognize individuals that have contributed to our mission. If you know of anyone that should be included, please contact me. Our guest speaker is Dana Cheney, Colonial Dance Master who will speak on Colonial and US flags.

   2017 has been another successful year. On January 26th, the Heritage Museum opened along with a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit.

   In April, our Spring Tea profited $2550. Also in April, our 8th historical marker was erected at the old St. George High School.

   Summer camps and special events were held at the museum and over 3000 visitors have toured the museum.

   From November 4th-11th, the museum will host a quilt display. If you have a quilt that you would like to display, please contact the center and provide your information. 

   Thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you on Nov. 9th. Please bring a friend.
