Being super-cautious, the Board has canceled February ‘s Conversation at The Crocker as well as February’s Sunday Afternoon Social.
We are still holding Sparkly Saturday on Sat. Feb. 12, which is both indoors in well-ventilated space and outdoors on our Porch,
and our traditional Historical Sarasota Bay Cruise on March 6 (spots filling up since we’re limiting numbers; get your reservations in NOW by calling Linda M-F 10 to 2 at 941-364-9076 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org)…
We’re happy to announce a peer event: Afternoons at the Mansion is a GO.
The Keith Mansion in Phillippi Estate Park at 5500 S. Tamiami Trail, was built by a Chicago couple in 1916. The Mansion itself is amazing, and in the classic living room they are presenting Lost Towns of Sarasota County with Kate Holmes, an HSoSC past Board member. This is not an HSoSC event, but it is sponsored by our peers and supporters, a not-for-profit formed to raise money to help fund a future local history venue in the neighboring the Edson Keith Farmhouse (1915).
Again, limited numbers admitted to the Mansion so reserve NOW. Call 941-861-7275 to reserve your seat.
The link to the county doesn’t seem to be working. Also where is Keith farmhouse? Can’t seem to find that information in your email. Can you give any information about the speaker?
Linda, thanks for having my back! Here’s info on Phillippi Estate Park, where the Keith Mansion is the showcase: https://www.scgov.net/government/parks-recreation-and-natural-resources/find-a-park/specialty-parks/phillippi-estate-park
and I am afraid you’ll have to call the county offices to make a reservation for the event since even I can’t negotiate their byzantine website 941-861-7275
as for the speaker? Well, I can’t say enough about her. Rest assured you’ll have a good time and learn stuff you didn’t know, didn’t know you needed to know, and will gather amazing fun facts to astonish and amuse your social circle.
