The Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum’s Second Annual Hueneme Spirit Award

The Port Hueneme Historical Society Museum

cordially invites you

to the ceremony recognizing the

Second Annual Hueneme Spirit Award

to Helen Brant

at 5:30 PM

on June 14, 2019

during the Friends of the Bard Quarterly Dinner

at the historic Bard Mansion


As we look at the history of Port Hueneme spelled out on the walls of the Museum, the one constant, even during the economic hard times, is what old-timers used to call the “Hueneme Spirit,” a characteristic found in individuals—and fortunately there were many—who were more motivated by service than by self. 

The main idea behind the “Hueneme Spirit” is the so-called “Golden Rule,” a philosophy that is hardly new but not as widely practiced as it might be. 

Still, ever since Thomas Bard platted the Friendly City by the Sea, the “Hueneme Spirit” continues to exist in such individuals as longtime resident and civic activist, Helen Brant.
