Her unique look at the history of the Yorke Island fort includes over 100 photos, both archival and modern, and stories from local residents who were living in Kelsey Bay and on Hardwicke Island when the fort was being built. Learn how the members of these small communities were affected by the influx of hundreds of soldiers and sailors, and how the fort grew over a period of six years. The talk is scheduled for 7:30p.m., Wednesday, May 30 at 1260 Shoppers Row.
