LAST DAYS OF THRIVING EAST END, ST. JOHN

The Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park will host a seminar, "Last Days of Thriving East End, St. John," from 9:30 a.m until 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 14 at the Cinnamon Bay Amphitheater.
Bernie Kemp, economist and local resident, and Guy Benjamin, historian, author and East-End resident, will examine the reasons for a decline in a once thriving community that occupied East End. Come listen as two local historians tell their tales and learn what East End was like then and what it is now. Each year the Friends of the Park offers a series of seminars, beginning in December and running through May, that are intended to educate and inform visitors to St. John, as well as island residents, about the natural and cultural resources of this unique area.
Seminar leaders are acknowledged experts in their respective fields. All proceeds go to support park programs. To participate, a place must be reserved in advance.
The cost of the seminar is $20 and class size is limited to 15 people.
