Members new and old gathered for food and fellowship on the evening of Feb. 21 for the first gathering of 2018. Former Stuart/Port St. Lucie News editorial page editor Ted Burrows shared his memories of coming to the county when he was 13, being a student as Indian River Community College began and working as a desk clerk at the Port St. Lucie Country Club (Club Med) before going off to college. He rounded out his talk with tales of being in the Audio-Visual branch of the White House Communications Agency during parts of the Johnson and Nixon administrations. City Councilwoman Jolien Caraballo, a society board member, provided an update on the moving of two historic ranch buildings to the Westmoreland site and planned to be a museum.
