Historical Society Annual Meeting and Natural History Movie


On Monday, January 12, the North Manchester Historical Society will hold its annual Members’ Meeting in the Assembly Room at Timbercrest.  The brief business meeting will include reports on the activities of the Historical Society for the past year and election of new board members.  Monthly programs for 2015 will also be announced. 


After the business meeting, the audience will be treated to a video about the natural heritage of Indiana:  “The Indiana That Was.”  This video is part of the Natural Heritage of Indiana Series, which seeks to celebrate Indiana’s natural heritage and human history, linking the landscape that was to what it is now and what it promises to be.  The challenge is to help protect what remains of Indiana’s natural heritage.


The series was shown on the PBS television station in Indianapolis a few years ago and is beautiful rendering of thousands of miles of travel and two years of photographing the natural wonders of Indiana.  This video will feature what the state once looked like, with vast forests and prairies, and a huge diversity of what now seem like exotic species.


The program will be held in the Assembly Room of Timbercrest Senior Living Community, 2201 East Street, at 6:40 p.m.  There is no cost for the program, which is free to the public.  All are welcome.  While many attend only the program, the public is also invited to come to the Assembly Room at 6 p.m. for a meal prior to the presentation.  For those who wish to attend the dinner, reservations must be made no later than noon on Friday, January 9.  The cost of the meal is $8.50, $3.50 for those on the Timbercrest meal plan.  Reservations may be made by calling Evelyn at 260-982-6777, or the Center for History at 260-982-0672.
