INDIAN ROCKS BEACH — History on the Rocks continues Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2 p.m., at the Indian Rocks Beach City Auditorium.

In this month’s one-hour talk, lifelong residents Billy and Shera Bie will present “Growing up in IRB in the ’40s and ’50s.” The event is presented by the Indian Rocks Historical Society.

“Find out why it couldn’t have been any better for the Bies and others lucky enough to experience its few roads and buildings, no traffic, lots of undisturbed nature and wide-open spaces that children were free to explore. Come share those early years with the Bies’ through their photos and memories of being kids in this still wonderful place to call home!” a press release said. 

The event is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted.

Society partners Crabby Bill’s Restaurant and Ready Set Yo Coffee Shop again will provide free refreshments.

The auditorium is at 1507 Bay Palm Blvd., across from Kolb Park, two blocks east of Gulf Boulevard.
