During the first three Sundays in February you are invited to sample a bit of our fascinating story! View a DVD in Room 8 – Sunday Feb. 2, Feb. 9, Feb. 16 from 10 -10:35 am and 12:25—1 pm.
In 1992 the Adult Education Committee asked the Chair of Archives, Marjory Spradling, to offer a three-session course on the history of People’s Church. She researched the Board of Trustees minutes since 1882 and some hand written ministerial accounts. Dave Curl illustrated the story with slides of various artifacts. When the course was repeated in 1994, Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary became a model for us to try something similar. Jack and Carol Urban agreed to use their Community Access Center experience to do the technical work. Dozens of members participated by finding pictures and information, being narrators and enactors, writing scripts, interviewing and being interviewed for the videotaping (1995-2005).
In celebration of our Sesquicentennial year, Jack converted the originals to DVD’s which are available for all to view. Drop in and get a short preview. On Feb. 17 the DVD’s will return to the Library for you to take home and enjoy.
