Historical Society Annual Meeting and Movie


On Monday, January 14, the North Manchester Historical Society will hold its annual Members’ Meeting in the Assembly Room at Timbercrest.  The meeting will begin at 6:40 p.m.


After brief reports on the activities of the Historical Society for the past year and election of new board members, the audience will be treated to a video, “See Yourself in the Movies, 1938.”  This silent movie was sponsored by Tri Kappa 75 years ago, and features residents, businesses and organizations in North Manchester in 1938.  This film was shown at our meeting two years ago and was very well received.  The Historical Society has spent the past two years identifying more of the people in the film.  Jim Adams has enhanced the original images, and Charles Boebel has added a new voice-over.


The public is also invited to come to the Assembly Room at 6 p.m. for a meal prior to the meeting.  For those who wish to attend the dinner, reservations must be made no later than noon on Friday, January 11.  The cost of the meal is $7.50.  Reservations may be made by calling Mary at 260-982-1813 or Evelyn at 260-982-6777.  There is no cost for the program, which is free to the public.  All are welcome.
