friday 5'o'clock whistle talks

In June the Beaches Museum & History Center started a new program called “Friday 5’O’Clock Whistle Talks.” This program brings authors, artist, noted personalities and other creative souls together. Every Friday from 5 – 6:30 pm you can hear their stories and experiences. Relax and enjoy complimentary refreshments and stimulating conversations with others. Guests are invited to come, listen, learn and share. Each week a new topic will be introduced. Donations are graciously accepted. The Beaches Museum & History Center is located at 380 Pablo Ave, Jacksonville Beach. For more information call 241-5657 or
