THS 2nd Thursday Monthly Meeting, April 13, 2017

A reminder that our April Meeting will be held this Thursday, April 13th at our regular site,  the Governor Martin House on Lafayette Street (1001 Desoto Park Drive). Our speaker will be Richard Decateau, whose topic will be “A Bomb in the Bushes”. This program should be both entertaining and enlightening! Richard will tell of finding a bomb in his backyard --- and discovering that it came from an aircraft flying from Tallahassee’s Dale Mabry Army Air Field during World War II! Naturally, this strange event  perked his interest and he has done extensive research, which has resulted in a fascinating bit of Tallahassee’s history.




I’m sure most of you probably read the front page story in the Tallahassee Democrat last Thursday that featured our program – and I’m sure that we’ll have a large crowd to hear our speaker Thursday evening.
