Herbi Hardt Presents “Everything One Hundred”

The next Gibraltar Talks program will be held on Sept. 13 at 7 pm at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall in Fish Creek. The focus will be on “Everything One Hundred.”

The main presenter will be Herbi Hardt, a centenarian who came to America in 1923 at the age of 12. He has held jobs as a landscape gardener and as a vaudeville entertainer. He and his family opened The Herbi Hardt Restaurant in Des Plaines, where he was the featured entertainer. Hardt’s final adventures brought him to Fish Creek where he operated a motel and eventually moved to a horse farm.

Following the theme, “Everything One Hundred,” there will be a display of Girl Scout uniforms from the past 100 years; Girl Scouts from Gibraltar School will model the uniforms. Oreos and coffee will also be served.

Audience members are asked to help celebrate 100 years by bringing in a 100-year-old photo or family artifact for display.

Gibraltar Talks programs are free, but donations are appreciated. For more information call 920.868.3618 or 920.868.9335.
