The drive will start at 1:30 p.m. and run until 6:30 p.m. The American Red Cross will have their blood collection tables set up inside the Federal Point Lodge #753 building. The lodge is located on the corner of Harper and Fifth Street.
This will be the 15th year that the local Masonic Lodge has sponsored a blood drive and, thanks to the support of the many people, civic groups, and churches in the Carolina Beach area, the drives have been successful. 
Many of our fellow residents in southeastern North Carolina have had to and continue to experience the ordeal of recovering from Hurricane Florence and Dorian. As a result of this aftermath of the storms, potential donors were unable to give blood. The American Red Cross has issued an urgent request for donors of all blood types. Interested blood donors can go online at and look for sponsor code    “ Lodge 753 “. Please take note that the Red Cross is announcing a             “ Rapid Pass “ program to allow blood donors to answer blood drive donor questions the day of the blood drive from their computer. Visit redcrossblood .org/Rapid Pass. Read the   information, answer the questions and print the pass. It is important to bring the printed pass when you arrive to donate blood. You can also make appointments by calling the Red Cross 1-800-733-2767 contact number and follow voice prompts. Finally, if necessary, you can call Mike Seigh at 910-409-1510 or 910-799-9954 to make an appointment.
Again, thanks to everyone for the support that you have given to the Red Cross and your Carolina Beach Masonic Lodge # 753.

America’s Boating Club® Helps Local Boy Scouts

The Cape Fear Sail & Power Squadron (a.k.a. America’s Boating Club) is helping a local Boy Scout troop earn their Motorboating Merit Badge. Volunteer instructors from the Squadron are teaching a 1-day safe boating course for the Scouts on January 25 at their local meeting place. Topics covered address basic navigation, rules of the road, docking, trailering, anchoring, radio communications, safety gear and more. Upon passing the exam at the end of class, the Scouts will be on their way toward earning their merit badge. The course curriculum is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and meets the North Carolina boating safety education requirement. In our state, any person born on or after January 1, 1988 must complete a NASBLA-approved boating education course before operating any vessel propelled by a motor of 10 HP or greater.
The Squadron also offers this course to the public as America’s Boating Course®. The next class is February 29, 2020, with an optional on-the-water teaching cruise in partnership with Wilmington Water Tours on March 1. The teaching cruise ventures down the Cape Fear River into the Intracoastal Waterway and back where dolphins and freighters are often spotted. The cruise enhances topics covered in class and adds discussions on chart reading, tides, currents, and weather. For more information and to enroll go to

Society January Meeting

Dr. Jamie Martinez will speak about the impressment of privately owned slaves and Native Americans to work on the building of Fort Fisher. Under policies instituted by the Confederacy, white Virginians and North Carolinians, surrendered control over portions of their slave populations to state authorities, military officials, and the national government to defend their new nation. State and local officials cooperated with the Confederate War Department and Engineer Bureau, as well as individual generals, to ensure a supply of slave labor on fortifications.
Dr. Jamie Martinez is an Associate Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, where she teaches classes on the US Civil War, Antebellum America, African American History, Historical Methods, and general US History. Her research focuses on the Civil War. Her first book, Confederate Slave Impressment in the Upper South, was published in 2013. She also coordinates an event series called Perspectives on the Civil War Era, typically, hosting one guest speaker each year, plus other programs like concerts and presentations featuring students and faculty.
When she’s not busy in the History Department, she likes to head over to the Music Department to sing in the choir and sometimes plays recorder with the Early Musick Ensemble. She also sings, plays handbells, and directs the children’s music program at her church.

That is to say he has been a dedicated fan of the one and only Jimmy Buffett! Larry was so infatuated with the music and persona of Jimmy Buffett that he became a musician.  For years he toured and was told by so many fans how much he sounded and looked like Jimmy Buffett! This eventually led to an amazing transformation in Larry's life.  Since it was so natural and fulfilling, he started performing only the music of his idol,  which fills volumes, and eventually added the authentic costuming and stage props. He then found a dedicated troupe of musicians who also were in awe of the legend! This formed BLUFFETT & THE SON OF A SAILOR BAND ... the most incredible re-creation and tribute to the "beach-master" himself....Jimmy Buffett!
BLUFFETT takes on the atmosphere of a genuine Buffett concert...right down to the audience participation and enjoyment and energy that goes with it! It will be hard to believe your eyes and ears once the show has started due to the uncanny re-creation by this awesome group of performers!
The music of Jimmy Buffett has covered several decades and his concerts sell out in a matter of minutes due to the popularity of this entertainer and the wide age group and cross section of fans who love the man and the music!!  So break out the Hawaiian Shirts, the Beach Sandals and start steaming the clams and let BLUFFETT set the beach-pace and take you to the barefoot sand-land of "Margaritaville"!

After the sun breaks the horizon, eager fans will lineup at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk to claim their piece of real estate heaven in the sand to welcome DaHowlies at 11:00 am, followed by The Phantom Playboys at 1:00 pm and closing out the day with the main act – BLUFFETT and the Son Of A Sailor Band at 3:00 pm. Ideal beach conditions are forecast to spread out and dance the day away.
As an added bonus, we will have local breweries and vineyards offering their best craft beers and vino specialties on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.  Take a break from the sun and come purchase your favorite craft beer or cup of wine and keep on dancing to all the FUN tunes.  We anticipate attendance to top the Carolina Beach Music Festival, so get your tickets TODAY before it sells out and arrive on site early to get your best seat to the End-Of-The-Summer Festival.  Tickets are available on-line at Eventbrite.  Hard tickets will be available soon at the Pleasure Island Chamber, Island Tackle, Silver Dollar and Olde Salty’s also for $25 in advance ($30 Day of Show).  So bring your coolers (no glass or hard liquor) and plenty of SPF 50 and be ready to TropRock to three FUN bands in the sand!

The Eye Learns - Modernist prints from the Louis Belden Collection Oct 22 - April 26, 2020

The critical eye, you don’t have it initially. The eye learns from experience and it takes time. - Louis Belden (1926-2017)
San Francisco art collector Louis Belden gave his art collection, the gift of his lifetime, to our community. This collection of prints invites us to share in his passions for art, for collecting, for learning, and for giving back. These works offer a range of expression, experimentation, and expansion of the terrain of postwar modernism and post-modernism. His gift to Cameron Art Museum is truly unprecedented in our region, giving future generations access to this treasure for years to come.
These 134 modernist prints by 51 artists reveal Belden’s journey and are primarily presented in the order he acquired them. The exhibition begins with his bold 1971 acquisition, Art Beat, a neon orange silk screen by Nobu Fukui. By the mid-1990s, he had acquired work by the leading artists, the change-makers, the radicals, such as Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, and Wayne Thiebaud. His final acquisitions of work by Richard Diebenkorn, Jasper Johns, and Ellsworth Kelly show the continuing growth and refinement of the collection.
Art is not stagnant. It grows and grows and grows. There will be new trends, some of which will be successful and some will not be and I have no idea what those trends will be. But it is exciting to wait around and see what does evolve. Certainly I have evolved in the last 20 years and plan to continue to evolve in the future.
