In partnership, the Moore County Historical Association and the Southern Pines Civic Club announce a presentation by local writer Ray Owen about Helen Boyd Dull, the Southern Pines Civic Club founder.

Owen will unveil the influential life of Helen Boyd Dull, who moved to Southern Pines in 1904. She not only led a group of women to form the Southern Pines Civic Club, in the early 1900s, but also marked a turning point for this region after the Civil War.

“Come learn about this inspiring woman and how she sparked conservation efforts across the South by saving what is today the world’s oldest stand of longleaf pines, right here in Weymouth Woods Nature Preserve,” says a spokesman. “This highly anticipated lecture will provide you with a greater perspective on how Ms. Dull’s efforts contributed to our history, which we still appreciate today.”

This free lecture is Sunday, April 5, at 3 p.m., at the Southern Pines Civic Club, 105 S. Ashe St., Southern Pines.
