Ormond Beach Historical Society Speaker Series

Truly Off the Beaten Path

April 24, 2021  10:00 a.m.

The always popular James "Zach" Zacharius from MOAS will reveal destinations that even Floridians haven't discovered. Look at scenic drives, historic destinations, and natural wonders from the hidden corners of our beautiful state.

Funding for this program was provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the Florida Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.

We are very grateful to the Florida Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for supporting us with the CARES Act Grant + the Additional CARES Act Grant. These grants provided us the opportunity to pay bills for the insurance (six months),  the bookkeeper (six months) and the 10-hr position Administrative Assistant from October through February (five months). Without their support, we could not have operated smoothly through the challenging time of COVID-19. From ALL of us:  sincere THANK YOU to the Florida Humanities Council and National Endowment for the Humanities!
