History is Happening in Narcoossee!

History is Happening in our Local Schools!

We are excited a new school year is upon us because we will be welcoming new and returning students to the History Club we sponsor at Narcoossee Middle School (NCMS).  NCMS Teachers Ms. Mary Hobbs and Mr. Timothy Leininger graciously serve as school sponsors for the Club this year.  Along with our dedicated chapter coordinators, Ms. Elnora Matura and Ms. Barbara Cox, they have put together an exciting schedule of meetings, informative local history presentations, and fun field trips.

Our Chapter’s driving vision is to “promote passion for the preservation of the unique history of the Narcoossee Area”.  The NCMS History Club is an awesome way to be able to educate students about our local history.  It is a joy to witness their enthusiasm for what they learn and to see them develop a “sense of place” for their own backyards!

The NCMS History Club students also have the opportunity to earn volunteer hours for requirements such as Honor Society or Bright Future Scholarships by helping out at our Chapter events.

If you have or know a student at Narcoossee Middle School, encourage them to join the History Club! Meetings are held at NCMS typically once a month on a Thursday in Building 3, Room 203, from 4:00PM-5:30PM.  However, this month, there are two meetings on September 7th and September 21st as the club starts their new year!

 

Next Chapter Event – Join us for the Osceola County Historical Society’s 26th Annual Pioneer Day on Saturday, November 11th from 10am-4pm at the historic Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek Regional Park in Kissimmee.  Free admission and parking.

The Narcoossee Chapter sponsors the Pioneer Art, Crafts, & Food Market on Pioneer Day.  We are now accepting applications for local artisans who make their own crafts and goods here in Central Florida.  Cost is $30 for a vendor space – if you are interested, please download and return the two required forms on this website - http://osceolahistory.org/event/26th-annual-pioneer-day/.  You can mail a check with the forms or pay online (for an additional $2 PayPal convenience fee).

Bring the whole family to Pioneer Day to experience a fun day of interesting history/re-enactors, music, great food, and unique shopping at the Market!
