AAUW (American Association of University Women) is sponsoring a presentation by Beth Hansen, Curator of the Historical Society of Talbot County. She will give a short presentation on life in Talbot County during the War of 1812, Monday, November 12 at 6:20 PM at Parkview at Easton, 640 Mecklenburg Ave. She will cover not only the local effects of the conflict, but fashions and furnishings of the era.
Beth Hansen has worked in small history museums for over 15 years. She has a Master’s Degree in Museum Studies. Although she is a “Come Here,” she has delved into Talbot County history during the 7 years she has been here and loves every minute of it. Her mission in life is to not make history boring; so she promises to do her best to give you an interesting presentation.
The public is invited at 6:30 for light refreshments. This is an AAUW Shape the Future meeting and national membership is half price for anyone joining the organization at this meeting. Call Karen Bailor at 410-770-5223 for further information regarding membership. AAUW advances equity for all women through advocacy, philanthropy, education and research.
