Heritage Museum Monthly Program September 1

LABELLE, FL -- LaBelle Heritage Museum resumes its monthly program meetings on Thursday, September 1, at 7 p.m. in the museum located at 360 North Bridge Street. Parking at the museum itself is limited, however Rene Curtis Pratt says museum attendees are welcome to use the parking lot at Harold Curtis Honey, Co., immediately across the street at 335 North Bridge Street. 

The museum's regular first Thursday of the month evening program meetings and its Special Speaker meetings made possible by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council are open to both members and the public at no charge. Attendees are asked to be seated and ready for the program to start at 7 o'clock since many of our guest speakers do have some distance to travel at the conclusion of the program.

The September program will be an update on the "Rehabilitation of LaBelle Heritage Museum's 1911 William H. Poole Store" being made possible by a $228,000 Special Category Grant from the State of Florida through its Division of Historical Resources. Museum president Joe Thomas, project professional engineer H. L. Bennett, and builder Grayson Hicks will report on the scope of the project and the guidelines they learned at a special program for grant recipients held on July 25. They hope actual project work will commence by the end of September at the latest.

There will be a short business meeting following a break for refreshments at the of the program. Membership renewal dues for the 2016/2017 LaBelle Heritage Museum will be accepted at this time along with new member applications and donations for special museum projects. The October meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 6, at 7 p.m.
