President’s Message – January 2019

As we start year 2019, the 19th year of the South Dorchester Folk Museum, i'm happy to report that SDFM is healthy and continuing it's mission to help preserve the history and memories of the South Dorchester County area...To date, we have over 150 video lectures by people familiar with this area and it's history..Those lectures are available to the public through the Library, Nabb Research Center, and the Dorchester County Historical Society or can be purchased through the SDFM website...

I encourage you to plan to attend our "free" lecture programs in 2019, on the 1st Wednesdays of most months..We also have found that the best suggestions for speakers come from our members, so please tell us about any person or subject you think may be of interest...We will follow up on your suggestions and try to make it a program...Anyone giving a program will receive a complementary DVD as a token of our appreciation...

Scholarships of $1,000 were awarded by SDFM in 2018, to two Students residing in South Dorchester. Both have attended and graduated from the South Dorchester Pre-K through 8 School..We will continue this program in 2019 and If you would like to financially support this program, your contribution will be appreciated and tax-deductible..
