Sanford women take drastic action to appease the Presbyterians

The Sanford Woman's Club

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that lead to the biggest battles. In this case, 6 inches is all it took. 

Thanks to Sanford City Commissioner Patty Mahany and Lisa Finnerty of Porzig Realty for sharing that story with me. They are both active members in the Sanford Woman's Club.

Don't forget, if you have a Celery City Story, I'd love to hear it. You can reach me at

The Sanford Museum has a special exhibit going on through November that I encourage you to go see. Willie "Pocket" Brown was a professional photographer who recorded the families, businesses and events in the Georgetown, one of Sanford's historic black neighborhoods.

The Brown family has generously loaned the museum many of Mr. Brown's photos, as well as his camera, for this limited-time exhibit. The runs through November, but will not be on display during September to allow the museum to display items relating to the Museum's 65th anniversary during that month. The Willie Brown exhibit will return for October and November.

The Museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
