May 21, 2024

Due to a conflict with Memorial Day, the May program will be presented on the third Tuesday instead of the fourth Monday of the month.  The location is the Bay County Library and the start time is 6pm. Free and open to the public

The May program will be a showing of the short film, Vigilante Town, directed by Wes Rolan. Recently shown at the Red Fish Film Festival, the film recounts the murder of storekeeper, Roy Van Kleeck, in downtown Panama City.  The suspected murderer was apprehended but taken from jail by vigilantes to be punished.
