Program Announcement: "Winter Wonderland" (Brown Bag Lunch Series)

A timely program:

Bring your lunch and join us in the Library Program Room as we explore a topic in local history. On Wednesday, February 9, at 12:00 noon, the topic will be Winter Wonderland. After the hush of a major snowfall, residents spill out of their homes to take in the beauty of new fallen snow. Reality sets in as driveways are shoveled and paths are cleared. Schools are closed and the joyful sounds of children playing in the snow ring out. Enjoy photographs from the Library’s Archives Collection of Sandusky and Erie County blanketed under snow, with an emphasis on the 1909 ice storm, and including a range of other snow storms to remember. Registration is requested. To register, call the Library at 419-625-3834 and press 0 to speak with a switchboard operator (10-5, Monday-Friday) or press Option 6 to leave a message.

I live year round in Florida and was in Sandusky for several days before Xmas and I noticed not one single kid playing in the snow and only one person on the ice at Battery Park. Maybe Sanduskians don't enjoy the winter anymore.
