Jacksonport Historical Society Hosts Annual Dinner Meeting

The Jacksonport Historical Society Annual Dinner Meeting, featuring Jessica Michna as Eleanor Roosevelt, will take place June 22 at Mr. G’s Logan Creek, located at 590 Highway 57 in Jacksonport. Cocktails will be served at 6 pm; dinner will be served at 6:30 pm. The event is open to the public.

“Eleanor” will share with the audience her tragedies and triumphs. Born into the opulent wealth of America’s “Golden Age” she grew from a shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman. Annealed by personal tragedy, she emerged as a champion of civil rights, author, and stateswoman. She is best summed up by President Harry S. Truman, who dubbed her “The First Lady of the World.”

The event will also feature a raffle of vintage moneybag purses in which one of the purses will have a $50 bill in it. Participants must be present to win.

Tickets for the event are $25. Send reservations to JHS Treasurer Kandi Skippon, 6315 Cty T, Egg Harbor, WI 54209. Jacksonport Historical Society only accepts checks or cash. All proceeds from this event are to benefit Jacksonport Historical Society Museum.
