A Look Back: Stories From The Attic - Online
Adult / Enrichment -
Adult Fall 2020 - Summer 2021
Did you know that people used to use stacks of newspaper as insulation in the house walls?! Several years ago a friend of our instructor knew of some remodeling that was being done at a family members house. During that project, they found a bunch of newspapers from the 1940’s tucked in the walls of the attic! This class will feature a virtual walk back in time. We will look at the headlines of the day; what was being advertised in those days; and what the ever popular “comics” section looked like! Amateur historian Jay Grammond will weave these pieces together to take you on a virtual walk back in time.
