Wendt Family History Presented at Jacksonport Historical Society Meeting

Join the Jacksonport Historical Society Sept. 20, 7 pm, at the Jacksonport Town Hall on County V as they present “The Wendt Family.”

Ervin and Clara Wendt moved to West Jacksonport from Milwaukee where Ervin worked for International Harvester. In 1927 they purchased the Henry and Martha Spille farm. It is here where they raised their family, living on this same farm for 45 years. Along with farming, Ervin served his community as the Jacksonport Town Treasurer. Ken Wendt, son of Ervin and Clara, will provide us with an interesting program relating to what it was like growing up on a farm during that time. Experiences such as going to a one-room school, long bus rides to Sevastopol High School and also what it was like growing up as the only boy in the family with four girls will be discussed. Join us this evening in bringing back many memories with family and friends of the Wendt family.

The program is open to the public, but a donation would be appreciated. Refreshments will be served following the program.
