4 October 2016 “Etched in Stone – Cemeteries: Their Symbols and Customs Presentation” presented by Dennis Jacobs and held in the Brown County Central Library – lower level 515 Pine St Green Bay, Wisconsin from 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm.

Dennis R Jacobs has been doing cemetery research since he was a teenager.  He would ride his bicycle to Holy Cross Cemetery in Bay Settlement and do rubbings with crayons and notebook paper.  This love of cemeteries has turned into a hobby, where Dennis now is documenting the graves of Civil War soldiers that gave their lives during the war.  He also assists friends and family on to document, photograph and correctly clean gravestones.  Dennis is the Senior Vice Commander of Old Abe camp 8 of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and the camp is currently working on searching and recording the graves of all the Civil War veterans in Wisconsin, so they can be added to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War national grave database.

RochellePennington

Come and take a walk down Memory Lane to the “Good Old Days” of the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s with author Rochelle Pennington. Her historical, light-hearted program will detail everyday life during the bygone years of corner phone booths, party lines, hand-me-down clothes, doctors who made house calls, wringer washing machines, marble matches, Howdy Doody shows, and outhouses.

Audience attendees will be invited to remember a time when percolating coffee pots, mothers in aprons, flour sifters, home-baked bread, and suppers prepared from canning jars lining the pantry shelves were part of everyday life. The author’s power-point presentation, featuring vintage photographs, will be complemented by a large collection of antiques she will display.
