Summary of Impact

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit 1. Site appropriate landscape improvements: In 2010 HSOSC was the recipient of a monetary grant from the Founders Garden Club of Sarasota to design and install a garden at the Bidwell-Wood House. This project linked Sarasota's oldest residence with Sarasota's oldest garden club. We made a garden with Florida native plants and Florida-friendly plants. The improvement in curb appeal yielded more people who visit the site and garden maintenance provides opportunities for volunteers. Since the garden is in Pioneer Park, a public space, community people use and enjoy the space. Wedding guests who use the Crocker Memorial Church appreciate photogrpahic opportunities in our garden. 2. Development of an Oral Histories Program: We call it the Ordinary Historians project becase we are ordinary people interviewing other ordinary people who have lived for a long time and have a perspective and a bank of memories that we are eager to capture. Our question to those we interview is this: what was it like then? We have a committee of five people who gather names and do the interviews. A grant from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County allowed us to buy video equipment. The interviews are archived in the form of a CD and we make copies available to interview subjects, other historical groups, HSOSC Web site and we keep copies in our archives. 3. Educational Outreach Programs - Historic Downtown Trolley Tours and Narrated Historic Cruises: Additionally we organize panel discussions and lecture series throughout the year geared to increase awareness of Sarasota's past. 4. Increase in Docent Tours by trained volunteers: We have an active trained group of docents qualified to lead large and small groups of various ages (including elementary school children) through the buildings. 5. Dramatic increase in the adaptive use of the Crocker Memorial Church for weddings, civic and social gatherings, arts and crafts shows, musical and theatrical performances and community meetings.
