June 10  Mike Perkins, Executive Director Orange County Regional History Center, – on the Anniversary of PULSE

On June 12, 2016, Orange County was impacted greatly by a senseless act of violence and hatred at Pulse Nightclub.

The Orange County History Center in partnership with Orange County Government created the One Orlando Collection, a tribute to the victims and survivors of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. More than 5,000 artifacts were collected, curated and documented from various sites across Central Florida, include the Pulse nightclub.

During Orlando United Day | A Day of Love and Kindness, the History Center opened a temporary exhibit that included hundreds of artifacts and memorials for loved ones, survivors, and community members to view. The exhibit was retired later as final plans to permanently display these items continue. Mike’s presentation today will update us on the progress of the memorial as a permanent exhibit.
