We all have those family heirlooms that may not have great market value but are priceless to us. It's rewarding to show those items we consider special and fun to see what others bring to share. We invite each attendee to bring an item to show to the group and explain what it means to you. The focus for this session is "items from the kichen". Marian Malone will facilitate the group and suggests that items might include pictures, pitchers, various utensils and more. This will be a fun session!

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

This lecture is based on the book Widow's Weeds and Weeping Veils: Mourning Rituals in 19th Century America by author Bernadette Loeffel-Atkins, a friend who's love for history inspired Linda's love of history.
