On Wednesday, August 25 at 7 pm, Tom Wilson will share historical pictures featuring Jacksonport’s cherry orchards, workers, and processing plants. The program will also feature some cherry harvesting equipment, though the presentation is focused on the people who harvested the crop, orchard owners and workers alike, and what it meant to them.

The presentation, open to the public, will take place at Jacksonport Town Hall on County V in Jacksonport. Refreshments will be served. For more information visit
