The Shorefront Legacy Center exhibit is open in our Chapel until the end of February. If you haven’t seen it yet – or you want to see it again – stop in any Sunday in February before or after church. Or, come to our community open house on February 26, from 1 to 3 PM. We are privileged to have the opportunity to house this exhibit which showcases the varied and unique stories of the North Shore’s Black residents. One of the biographies you will see displayed is that of Charles Harrison.

Charles Harrison
Ever used a portable hair dryer? For those of you over fifty, do you remember the View-Master – the toy that looked like a pair of binoculars? You inserted a disc of tiny picture negatives in the front end and clicked your way through stories, adventures, and travels. These are only two of the many products designed by Charles Harrison. Hired by Sears in 1967,  Mr. Harrison designed nearly 750 products and was eventually promoted to group manager for consumer products design.
