Helping “Pioneers” become involved with the Historical Society

The Pioneer Picnic, for residents of 50 years+, has been an event held in Sarasota for almost 40 years. It’s sponsored by the Rotary Club as a way to honor long-term residents, and the Historical Society was honored to be invited to set up an informational table on Sunday, October 7 2012.

We'd love to hear what you have to say!
