December 8: Bubba Von Harten to speak to Beaufort County Historical Society

Bubba Von Harten to speak to Beaufort County Historical Society, Dec. 8th

Beaufort County Historical Society is pleased to present long time Beaufort County Historical Society member and former Treasurer, Bubba VonHarten, who will discuss his new book Little Geech: A Shrimper's Story at the society's meeting on Dec. 8th.

The meetings will be held at noon at the Beaufort Yacht & Sailing Club, Meridian Rd., Beaufort, SC. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend at no charge.

Vonhaten was born in Beaufort in 1930, joined the Air Force and helped create a shrimping heritage that's nearly "legendary along the coast of SC." His fun biography is an easy read for anyone interested in shrimping, the Low Country or just local name dropping (just enough to make it interesting but not incriminating, isn't that really what we want to read?)

Please RSVP to Pamela Ovens 843-785-2767 by Dec. 5th at 5 pm for an optional light lunch catered by Debbi Covington will be served at 11:30 for $10.

Upcoming Events:
Feb. 9th, Joseph McGill will speak on the 54th Mass. presented by SC Humanities Council.

The Beaufort County Historical Society is the oldest association in Beaufort County dedicated to the study and preservation of history. A member based organization, the society was established in 1939.
