Summer Heats Up & our Members Step Up!!!
Many thanks to our members who have stepped up this summer to help the Historical Society of Sarasota County.
Sue Padden has volunteered to head up the landscaping committee and has planted our herb garden – she comes often to check on “her garden”. She has also elected to do a monthly donation to HSOSC with our pay pal monthly donation key on our website. Please join her in this by checking the button on the website. This is a tremendous help with the funding for the maintenance and upkeep for the two historic gems in Pioneer Park – the Bidwell-Wood House (1882) and the Crocker Memorial Church (1901).
Paul Morrisroe volunteered his time and labor to repair the irrigation systems sprinkler heads and connections. This is a great help for the maintenance of the yards.
Jon Moore located an antique church bell at the Helm Vault company and coaxed them into making a donation to HSOSC.
We thank him and Jack Helm and are looking forward to our “Ring the Bell” party in September (details coming: stay tuned!).
Gloria Nepstead has stepped up to replace Margret Bering as our volunteer plant lady taking care of the flower boxes on the front porch of both the church and the house.
