John Hamilton Gillespie Celebration Week

The week-long party
celebrating the Father of Sarasota…and golf was a big success! From O'Leary's Kick-off Party, Jeff LaHurd's New Book, Jacobites Bagpipers, Trolley Tours, Kiwanis Golf Tournament, and Hartman Gallery Photography Exhibition, to the Palm Avenue Street Party, The Macallan VIP Scotch Tasting, Lunch in Rosemary Cemetery, and Walking Tour of the Gillespie Park Neighborhood - every special event was a wonderful way to honor Sarasota's history.

Monday Night New Owen Burns Book Release Party

There was a great gathering tonight of friends for Jeff LaHurd's new book "Owen Burns, The Man Who Bought and Built Sarasota" at Mattison's™ City Grille in downtown Sarasota. Diane and Pete Esthus, from the Friends of Sarasota County History Center, took care of the book sales while Jeff autographed copies for his many fans. And everyone happily posed for photos with Mr. Burns.
