GREENVILLE – Friends of the Darke County Parks will host its second event in a fun new series, Every Woman has a Story.
Join them on Aug. 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Darke County Park District’s Shawnee Prairie Nature Center, 4267 State Route 502 W., Greenville, for a special ladies’ luncheon to celebrate women and their stories.
This second session will highlight Lady Karen W. Burkett of the Washington Family who will share her knowledge of historical underpinnings and dress. Burkett has long supported the Park District and even national historical sites with her vast knowledge of Early American History and has served many times as hostess in the log house, teaching about our forefathers (and the strong women who accompanied them). ‘
Door prizes will be given and prizes will be awarded for the most unique piece of vintage clothing or accessory. So if you have great great grandma’s christening dress or crazy Aunt Bess’ vintage jewelry collection come share your story.
The menu will include finger sandwiches, strawberry spinach salad, and homemade ice cream with waffle cone and a toppings bar, lemonade and tea. The cost is $20 per person ($15 for Friends Members) at time of reservation.
