The Society is beginning new activities after observing its 60th anniversary with a dynamic program October 19, 2014, co-sponsored with the Camden Archives, where the group met with a full house of members and guests.
(If you missed having a slice of birthday cake with us, enjoy our report and photos of activities and join us next time!)
Speaking was delightful Camdenite Ross Beard, telling the stories that go along with the stunning Ross Beard Collection that the Archives is billing as “The Best Gun Collection in the South.” It is “Not Just Guns,” Archives director Katherine H. Richardson wrote recently. “The weapons comprise only about 25 to 30 percent of the entire collection when each three-dimensional object in the collection is counted.” Video
New officers elected are president Julie Putnam, vice-president Kathy Hill, and treasurer Lon Outten.
