Steele Creek Historical Society Meets Monthly; Christmas Feast is November 27

(November 26, 2006) The next meeting of the Steele Creek Historical and Genealogical Society will be on Monday, November 27 at 6:00 P.M. at the Family Life Center at Central Steele Creek Presbyterian Church (corner of S Tryon Street and Westinghouse Blvd). This is the Society's annual Christmas meeting and feast.

The special guest will be Ms. Lisa Gray from the Charlotte Trolley System. Ms. Gray will give a brief history of the trolley system. The first trolley system operated in Charlotte from 1893 until it was discontinued in 1938. She will also have information on the new system, its current progress, and its projected future expansion.

The society will be providing the meat and drinks for the Christmas feast. Please call
