Adult Enrichment 2021-22
Did you know that people used to use stacks of newspaper as insulation in the house walls? Several years ago a friend of our instructor knew of some remodeling that was being done at a family members house. During that project, they found a bunch of newspapers from 1941 tucked in the walls of the attic! This class will feature a virtual walk back in time. We will look at the headlines of the day, what was being advertised in those days, and what the ever popular “comics” section looked like! Amateur historian, Jay Grammond will weave these pieces together to take you on a virtual walk back in time.
Jay Grammond is a Professional Photographer and Amateur Historian. He was thrilled when he inherited this stack of old newspapers, and marveled at the stories within the pages! As a child in the 1970’s, he actually clipped articles of interest out of newspapers to keep in a scrapbook, so this seemed meant to be.
