September 2008

Well, the whole summer has come and gone and I have failed to post any new blogs for our Society.

We had some great meetings, and wonderful rambles in the spring.
Of course, we do take the months of summer off on break, but we are back and have a great fall schedule planned.

For our September meeting we had a wonderful speaker, Ken Holcomb, who we met on our ramble in May over in Brantley County.

He gave us wonderful talk on the treasures he has found at his property; buttons from coats of Civil War soldiers, buckles, spoons, bullets, and a lot of other interesting things.
He gave a wonderful history of the area as well as a peek into the lives of the time period.

Also at this meeting was the unveiling of the Historical Quilt commissioned from the Camden Quilt Guild for our Cemetery Preservation Fund fundraiser.

We hope to have tickets available soon to purchase a chance to win this beautiful quilt. The drawing will be held during the Christmas Tour of Homes, in St. Marys in December.
The quilt is on display at the Camden County Library in Kingsland for the month of September, and will be moved to an as yet undecided location in St. Marys for Oct.
Then, the quilt will again move to a new location for November, and then back to St. Marys for December until the drawing.

Each time the quilt moves, I will be sure to let you all know where you can go to view it.

For those of you reading this from afar, here is a photo of the quilt.
Believe you me, this photo does not do the quilt justice!

We will have tickets available soon.
They will be $5.00 each or 6 for $25.00.

As soon as the tickets are available that information will be posted here.
So, check back soon!

Good luck!
