The History of the 'Friends of the Sarasota County History Center'.
 
At the urging of David Baber, then General Manager of the Sarasota County History Center, a "Friends" steering committee was formed in July, 2005.  Linda Greaves, then Manager of the Office of Community Involvement for Sarasota County spearheaded the formation of the steering committee composed of private citizens Diane and "Pete" Esthus, Kim Hart, Bill LaGassee and Nathalie McCulloch.  Also serving on the committee were David Baber, Jeff LaHurd and Ann Shank, then members of the History Center staff.

The Articles of Incorporation were filed with the Florida Department of State on August 17, 2005 and application for a 501(c)3 exemption status was applied for with the Internal Revenue Service.

The purpose of the "Friends" is to promote programs and services at the History Center, further efforts to assemble historical exhibits, help preserve a constantly growing collection of artifacts and materials from our past and promote research for our future based on the heritage of Sarasota County

Membership consists of individuals, families, students, corporation and organizations as well as patrons and benefactors.   Join us, won't you?
