16 WBM Remembering the New Hanover Fishing Club I very much enjoyed read-ing the article about the New Hanover Fishing Club in the June issue. Mr. Burke Bridgers, my wife’s grandfather, was one of the originators of the New Hanover Fishing Club but was not featured in your article. Mr. Bridgers was a well-known fish-erman from the South Carolina line to Cape Lookout. He was quite the storyteller regarding his fishing exploits. Hope you will mention him in your future fishing articles. Thanks. — John Williams, Wilmington Correction The Charlie Daniels Band will perform its only Wilmington concert this year at Thalian Hall on October 22. Based on incorrect information, in our June issue we mistakenly reported that the band would perform at a riverfront venue this summer. Thalian Hall marketing director Gary Tucker said Daniels, who was born in Wilmington on October 28, 1936, will be performing his 80th birthday concert in his hometown. letters to the editor We would love to hear from you!
