TONIGHT – Regular WCHS Meeting Features “Journey Stories”

By Betty Green

You don’t want to miss the last meeting for the year: May 8, 7PM, Wakulla County Public Library.

The program, to be presented by Florida Folk Festival performers, Joan and Amy Alderman from Blountstown, the home of the wonderful Panhandle Pioneer ettlement. Often funny, occasionally unexpected, always entertaining, these colorful ladies proudly show off their Florida Panhandle roots with their collection of tales and tunes. Called “Journey Stories,” these are tales of how we, and our ancestors, came to America, and are a central element of our personal heritage. From Native Americans to new American citizens and regardless of ethnic or racial background, everyone has a story to tell.
