Every Woman Has a Story

Join us August 12, 2017 from 10am to 1pm in the Darke County Park District’s Shawnee Prairie Nature Center for a special ladies’ luncheon to celebrate women and their stories. This second session will highlight Lady Karen W. Burkett of the Washington Family who will share her knowledge of historical underpinnings and dress. Karen has long supported the Park District and even national historical sites with her vast knowledge of Early American History and has served many times as hostess in our log house, teaching about our forefathers (and the strong women who accompanied them!) Door prizes will be given and prizes will be awarded for a unique piece of vintage clothing or accessory. So if you have great-great-grandma's christening dress or crazy Aunt Bess’s vintage jewelry collection-come share your story!
The menu will include: finger sandwiches, strawberry spinach salad, and homemade ice cream with waffle cone and a toppings bar, lemonade, and tea.
Cost $20.00 per person ($15 for Friends Members) at time of reservation.
Hosted by the Friends of the Darke County Parks
