There’s a new member of the Moultrie Creek family – the Moultrie Journal. If you aren’t aware, I am a native of St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest permanent European settlement in the United States. Yes, we were here long before the Jamestown or Plymouth colonies. Beginning next year, we will initiate a multi-year celebration of the beginnings of United States history. The party starts with the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida by Ponce de Leon in 1512 and continues through 2015 when St. Augustine celebrates its 450th birthday. Moultrie Journal is a way to share all that history through photos and stories.
I’m not alone. There’s a growing number of people, organizations and agencies doing their part. So, in addition to the articles you’ll find at the Journal, I invite you to follow the Moultrie Journal Twitter feed which will point you to all these great sources. By taking advantage of some of the new tablet apps like Flipboard for the iPad, you can enjoy all these articles, archives and photos in a beautiful magazine format.
