PORT ST. LUCIE -- The Port St. Lucie Historical Society in partnership with the Port St. Lucie Downtown Lions Club gifted 50 history books, Port St. Lucie at 50, and 50 DVDs of the docudrama City of Dreams to the St. Lucie County Public School District at a January meeting in Fort Pierce.

The items are for permanent use in all St. Lucie County school media centers, and will be available to help children learn about their local history.

The gift, valued at $2,750, was a joint effort of the Lions Club, which raised the seed money, and the Society, which provided the books and DVDs at cost. The organizations worked together because of their mutual support for the District's mission of quality education.

Publishing of the books and DVDs were funded in part by the city to preserve its unique history. They commemorate Port St. Lucie's 50th Anniversary, which took place April 27, 2011.

The Society is now working to raise funds to place the history book in specific classrooms in the District. Contributions can be made through the society's website, by calling (772) 337-5698.
