President's Message

We need volunteers to help run our club in 2016. TBSK may need to change the way we do things in 2016 if we are unable to fill the two positions where we need help. See article on page 11 of the October newsletter for details. Please let me, or a board member, know if you can help us in 2016.

October Meeting

History of Tampa Bay - Rodney Kite-Powell - curator at Tampa Bay's History Center and editor of the Tampa Bay History Journal will be talking to us about the history of the early American Indians in and around the Tampa Bay area and will also give a brief history of Tampa Bay's waterfront. In addition to his duties at the History Center, Mr. Kite-Powell has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Tampa, where he taught a course on the history of Florida. He is also the regular columnist for the Tampa Tribune's History & Heritage Page. His book, History of Davis Islands: David P. Davis and the Story of a Landmark Tampa Neighborhood, was published in 2013 by The History Press.
