The latest batch of material from the Stanly County Museum includes memorabilia from the Albemarle Lions Club as well as several yearbooks from Albemarle Senior High School.

The unique items from the Lions Club feature several members from their early activities with the club and follows them through leadership roles within the wider national organization. These items could be very useful for those interested in studying the history of Albemarle during the mid- to late twentieth century as the scrapbooks contain many newspaper clippings documenting the Lions’ activities in the area.

These new materials include additions to both the North Carolina Memory Collection, including scrapbooks and callings cards, as well as to the Images of North Carolina Collection, including photo albums and group composites.

Several of the highlights from this batch include:
