Join Gibraltar Historical Association’s first Gibraltar Talks program of the season on June 22, 7 pm, at Fish Creek’s Old Town Hall, 4267 Maple Street. The subject is Camp Meenahga, a camp for girls that ran from 1916 to 1948 at Peninsula State Park.
It is important to find an expert when providing a program that reflects an interesting time in Fish Creek’s past. Gibraltar Historical Association is happy to announce Kathleen Harris, Peninsula State Park naturalist, will bring stories of this wonderful girls camp to life. Harris has spent an enormous amount of time gathering information from every place possible as well as searching out individuals to create a wonderful collection of Camp Meenahga history. It might be safe to say no one knows more on the location and day-to-day activities in present day.
Harris will talk about founders of Camp Meenahga, Alice Orr Clark and Mrs. Fannie Woodward Mabley, both widows with young children searching for a source of income. Bring your questions, stories or just your curiosity and enjoy a fun evening with friends talking about the past.
Presented by Gibraltar Historical Association, Gibraltar Talks is a nonprofit sharing history with our community and visitors. For more information, call 920.868.2091 or find Gibraltar Historical Association on Facebook.
