Memories Of The Past At Museum Meeting

LABELLE, FL. -- LaBelle native Robert Ernest Hollingsworth will recount his memories of his grandfather Robert Waldron at the November 7 program meeting of the LaBelle Heritage Museum at LaBelle City Hall, 481 West Hickpochee Avenue, at 7 o'clock in the evening. 

Mr. Waldron was a member of well-known Southwest Florida pioneer family who moved to LaBelle at an early age. He and his wife Catherine had three daughters, Margaret, Virginia, and Roberta, all now deceased, and their five grandsons all attended school in LaBelle. 

Rob Waldron, an entrepreneur and local businessman, is remembered by many old timers as the owner of the Courtview Restaurant, the Waldron Hotel, and the builder operator of the LaBelle Motel as well as for his construction and farming activities over the years.

The meeting is open to the public and anyone interested in knowing more about LaBelle and our heritage is welcome. Refreshments will be served following the program. LaBelle Heritage Museum schedules monthly program meetings on the firstThursday of the month from September through May that remind those who have made their homes here for a lifetime what made LaBelle the community it was as well as opening a window to our heritage to new residents and visitors alike.
