Program: A Visit with the Willard Family

Most clock enthusiasts know about some of the great clocks made by the Willards, but some members of the Willard family led historically interesting lives not associated with clock making. For instance, Benjamin, Simon and Aaron, Sr. all had a brief enlistment in the Continental Army. Aaron was given the rank of Captain by General George Washington, and he also served as a spy. Did you know Simon Willard and Thomas Jefferson were personal friends and Simon was a frequent visitor to Monticello?

Show and Tell: Any member or guest can bring a horological item, or related item, to the meeting and show it off and tell about it. We have had some very interesting items over the years, and the sky is the limit.

Silent Auction: Any member or guest can bring horological items, or related items, to the meeting and place them into our Silent Auction ($1.00 for each item/or lot). The starting price (reserve price) is stated by the seller. Any member , or guest, can bid on any item that is listed in our Silent Auction.

Chapter 154's Continuing Efforts to Service and Restore Daytona Beach's famous Coquina Clock Tower

March 21, 2008 marked the completion of the 2007/2008 clockworks replacement project when city workers from Daytona Beach started up the new motors and Jim  Ziesler and Tom Bransford, Chapter 154 members, put the new hour and minute hands on the four dials of the Coquina Clock Tower. The tower is now telling time once again.
