On April 21, the intriguing history of Big Canoe’s past fifty years will come alive with stories related by those who lived them. This special event will be from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Sconti Clubhouse Mountains View room, with a social gathering beginning at 4:30 p.m.
Resident photographer and video producer Mark Green will open the program by showing the fourteen-minute documentary that he spent a year creating for Big Canoe’s 50th anniversary. In addition to classic photos that most of us have never seen, the video includes brief interviews with many fascinating former and current residents of our community.
Following the video presentation, Mark will moderate a panel discussion featuring Big Canoe historian Jan Murphy, who was a script consultant on the film, and some of the wonderful people who spoke on camera for the production. Scheduled speakers include Kathleen Ingram, Gordon and Syl Harnsberger and Jack Schroeder who will relate some vivid stories about the early days here and experiencing the changes and development of this idyllic community over the past fifty years. The discussion will culminate with a Q&A exchange with the panelists, which is sure to be a treat.
This presentation is sponsored by the Big Canoe 50th Anniversary Task Force. Be sure to save the date on your calendar and come early for social time while enjoying international and domestic cheeses, crackers, fruit and a complimentary glass of wine. Space will be limited, and a $10 fee will be charged.
