The St. Joseph Historical Society, first organized in 1959, held its annual meeting last week during a dinner at Sunset Coastal Grill.
President Charlotte Pierce summarized the past year as one marked by less business and more preparation for the future as the Society works on the relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse. The organization has focused on saving the historic lighthouse for well over a decade.
Officers for 2014 are Pierce, president; Lynda Bordelon is vice president; Linda Wood is the recording secretary; treasurer is Pauline Pendarvis; and Paula Boone is the parliamentarian. They were sworn by Clerk of Courts Becky Norris. The guest speaker was Joseph S. Cocking, president of Lighthouse Lamp Shop, Inc. of Fleming Island, FL. Cocking and his team removed the lens from the Cape San Blas Lighthouse last week..
