Tuesday, February 26 - 10 am
Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, “First Lady of the World,” forever changed the role of the first lady through her active participation in politics and humanitarian efforts. She was the longest-serving First Lady throughout her husband Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office. Millions of people who never met her felt a bond that verged on kinship. Eleanor’s was a remarkable and inspiring life, a voyage of self-discovery. She triumphed publicly over private despair, transformed from a shy, lonely woman to a national leader in her own right.
Ruth Pangrace, an actress/educator from Women in History, will bring Eleanor to life on Tuesday, February 26 for the Home and Garden Club. Women in History is an organization based in Cleveland, Ohio and brings dramatic portrayals of notable American women to schools, civic groups, libraries and Chautauqua festivals throughout Ohio and neighboring states. Ruth is a retired teacher and has been part of this group for twenty years, portraying ten different women from our nation’s history.” Ruth is also Jan Malick’s sister, so you won’t want to miss this interesting peek into history. Bring friends, neighbors or anyone interested in seeing history come to life.
