New President interim

My name is MJ Manning. I'll be the president interim for Guale Historical Society until January 2008.

A lot has happened in the past year. We've had some wonderful rambles around the county, and some really great speakers at our in-house meetings at the St. Marys Public Library.

Newest on our agenda is the Colerain Marker Treaty unveiling and dedication ceremony taking place on November 1, 2007 at the marker site on Hwy. 40 at 1:00 p.m. This will be followed by a reception with refreshments at the Bryan-Lang Historical Library.

This marker has been a long and arduous process over the past two years culminating in a very beautiful marker roadside to commemorate the Treaty of Colerain.

On November 8, 2007 we will have our annual banquet/business meeting at Magnolia Manor.
A wonderful menu has been assembled for us. Our speaker at this event will be Angie Bryant of Camden County, an accomplished historian herself.

A more complete update with photos of our rambles will be forthcoming.

Have a great Holiday Season!

MJ Manning,
President Interim
