2023 August Meeting – An Evening of Remembrance

Date: August 28, 2023
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Location: 1147 West Boulevard Racine, Wisconsin

Join us for a bit of history when notable Racinians interred at Mound Cemetery will come to life as they are played by eight actors.  Racine Theatre Guild will be presenting scripts written by Margo Drummond.  Complete with period costume, they will give us a taste of what life in Racine was like during the Civil War.  Mary Waid, Lecturer with the University of Wisconsin Parkside, has put together this highly anticipated performance.  Learn also about some of the characters’ accomplishments during this era of unrest and tragedy.

Note: this meeting is held the last Monday of August so members can purchase tickets for the Tour of Historic Places.  (see upcoming events)
