"River of Everlasting Memories"
I posted local poetess, Edith Bannister Dowling's poem about the Water Festival on July 15, 2008.
For the more research minded, the Beaufort District Collection has a few relatively fragile scrapbooks about the Water Festival during the 1960s in our archival holdings. We'll be happy to show you the scrapbooks if you come in to the Research Room during our regular hours of operation.
Please note: Charmaine, our Beloved BDC docents, and I will show an in-house customer any in-house material we have (that is, if we can find it within a reasonable amount of time in this incredibly overcrowded workspace and public research room). Just don't come expecting to take home copies of any of the images or pages of the scrapbooks! For details why this is, read the "Eternal Conundrum" entry that immediately precedes this one.
