The Broward County Historical Commission, located at the historic West Side Grade School, 301 Harmon (S.W. 13th) Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, will host its June Brown Bag Historical Lunch Program beginning at noon on Thursday, June 21, 2012.
From the early 1900’s, Broward County has been a “mover and shaker” in the sports world earning state-wide recognition in track and field, swimming, tennis, football and baseball. Members of the Broward Sports Lunch Bunch led by Referee R. L. Landers and Coach Bill Huegele will relate the stories of bygone wins (and maybe a few losses). Don Austin, Frank Curtis and Wynn Casteel will assist in “covering all bases.” There will be a PowerPoint presentation that features sports activity from all areas of Broward County. Attendees are encouraged to bring their sports stories and photos to share with the others in attendance.
Attendees should bring their own lunch. Cold drinks and coffee will be provided. Guests are advised not to park in the numbered spaces to the south and west of the Historical Commission building. For additional information about the program, contact Helen Landers at 954-357-5514 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on parking, call the Historical Commission at 954-357-5553.
