The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum to Host Four Fascinating & Fun Events in September

Summer Sips & Sounds
Music of the 1980s
A Thursday evening concert featuring 'The Music of the 1980s' will kick-off with a cocktail reception at 6 pm followed by the performance starting at 6:45 pm. The disco '80s was amplified flash, celebrating both big shoulders and big hair. It was the decade that IBM produced the ancestor of all PC computers and boomtown Boca was hailed as Silicon Beach. Tickets are $40 for BRHS members, $45 for nonmembers.

Town Hall Talk
In conjunction with the museum's current exhibition will be this special presentation by Dr. Candace Cunningham, Assistant Professor of History at Florida Atlantic University, who specializes in African American history, Women and Gender studies, and Public History. Her research is on the 20th century African American experience with a special emphasis on civil rights, education, gender, and the South, and she conducted oral histories and wrote an essay to accompany the photography exhibit. Town Hall Talk starts at 6 pm with check-in and refreshments, and the lecture begins at 6:30 pm. FREE for BRHS members, $10 for guests.

Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys / SOLD OUT
Back for the first time since 2019, participants in this delightful fundraiser will meet at the Waterstone Resort & Marina,999 E. Camino Real in Boca Raton (33432) for a champagne reception before riding colorful trolleys to five different restaurants for a bite and a signature drink, ending back at the Waterstone for dessert. Participating restaurants include Cove Brewery, Privaira Hangar, American Social, Sushi by Bou and The Boca Raton. The historically informative and laugh-filled trolley rides are a real hoot.
