A Special Message to our Boynton Beach Historical Society Family
March 23, 2020
At a time when we are all feeling anxious and isolated from our family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors, Boynton Beach Historical Society’s stories of faith, struggle, and hope are available through our Library archives at www.boynton-beach.org/library/archives, Historic Boynton Beach on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/historicboyntonbeach and on our website, http://www.boyntonhistory.org/. Florida Humanities https://floridahumanities.org/ offers some great Florida stories as well.
These past events recall how people cared for and helped one another in our community. Please pray for those affected by COVID-19 and for the medical professionals who are caring for them.
Now is the time for us to be kind to others and take time to appreciate the beauty of tropical Florida. History can keep us connected and inspired as we navigate these unchartered waters. Boynton survived the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, Yellow Fever, the 1928 Hurricane, the Great Depression, two World Wars, and we will overcome this coronavirus.
Sadly, we have postponed the remainder of our season’s events. We will miss seeing you, but we promise to stay in touch with new information.
We want you to know how grateful we are for your continued, faithful support that helps us share important stories and collections through our programs and outreach. Please stay safe and hopeful as we face this invisible enemy. History will show we were made stronger during this time. Your Board of Directors looks forward to when we can gather again.
President, Boynton Beach Historical Society
