Entertainment of the 40’s
Doesn’t this sound like fun? “Entertainment of the 1940s” will be presented by our guest speaker, Ceci Wiselogel on Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.
Note that we have changed the date to earlier in
October so we can bring you this great program:
We have never been even slightly disappointed with a program from Ceci Wiselogel and our October program will be another one to remember and talk about.
During WWII, the arts and culture gave needed relief from the stress of war. It was the heyday of the silver screen and glamorous stars (how many can you name?) Burns and Allen, Fibber McGee and Molly, kept America laughing over the airwaves and early radio was the most popular form of entertainment. The Big Bands (how many can you name?) had America swinging and Betty Grable was the G.I.’s sweetheart. Take a toe-tapping, memorial “Sentimental Journey” back to the 1940s through movies, music, stories, and radio shows.
Bring your family, neighbors and friends. There is free parking, admission is free and so are the refreshments at the end of the program. Come and enjoy the socializing, and remember that tours are available at no charge after the program. There are three floors of interesting and exciting artifacts waiting to be discovered by you.
