      Vol. #9 Issue #1
      Let’s Make 2022 One for the History Books

       Happy New Year! I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re hoping for a relatively … uneventful… 2022. 

      That’s not to say we won’t have events – we have plenty on tap for 2022, and we’re excited to see everyone again. We continue to practice safety protocols at the museum: regular cleaning, of course, and we have masks and sanitizer available for all our guests. We do not require masks for fully vaccinated guests, but even if you’re fully vaccinated and want to wear a mask, that’s fine by us – we recognize many people want to wear masks, so we’re leaving it at your discretion. Whatever it takes to make you feel good about attending our porch parties and other events, because we want to see you in 2022!

      So how can you see us in January? I’m so glad you asked! Just before we zoomed into lockdown in 2020, we held our inaugural “Gulfport Stories” live oral history event with former Gulfport mayor, Yvonne Johnson. We’re pleased to resume these this month with another living Gulfport legend: Dawn Fisher. Dawn’s a former councilmember, but in more recent times people know her because they see her around the city picking up litter. She’s an amazing woman with a rich history, and I hope you’ll take the chance this month to hear her story – and, if you’d like, ask her a few questions of your own.

      We have lots more happening, too – stop by and check out our new hours (Thurs.-Sat., 10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and come see us at the Gulfport Tuesday Market. We’ll be at 31st Avenue and Beach Boulevard South every Tuesday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. (Also, we’d love new volunteers to work with us during those times. It’s fun – why not sign up for a shift?) Thank you all for supporting our history, and we look forward to a fruitful and historic (but in a good way!) 2022!

      It’s Time to Elect Our Next Pet Mayor

      The time has come to elect a new pet mayor! Support your favorite cat-idate or can-dog-date by voting (as often as you like) at the Gulfport History Museum, the North End Tap House, Gulfport Public Library, Gulfport Beach Bazaar, Stella’s or Paw Paws – each vote costs $1. We’ll announce the winners at Gulfport’s Get Rescued on Feb. 26.

Voting opens this week, so vote with your wallet ($1 = 1 vote) and vote often! May the best dog, cat, or honey badger win! Vote now!
      We Need You!
      The Gulfport Historical Society needs volunteers to help keep the doors open, assist with projects, work on special events, and at our booth at the Tuesday Morning Market. You do not need to be a Gulfport expert; we just need people who want to help make history come alive! Sign up here.
