Big thanks to living history participants

Published: Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

I would like to send a big thank you to all the participants in the Ogle County Historical Society’s Living History Program during Autumn on Parade.

Sherry Piros (Margaret Fuller), Jon Barnhart (John Deere), Melinda Egli (Ruby Nash), Marie Ley (Laura Fessler), Rita Mueller (Grandma Burright), Ron Colson (Lorado Taft), and last, but certainly not least, Joanne Reisner, as the many characters of the Spoon River Anthology.

You were all just great. There have been a lot of comments made on what a success it was. You all looked wonderful at the Nash Museum on Oct. 5, and in the parade on Oct. 6.

Special thanks to Pizza Hut and Subway for feeding our historic team. Also, thank you, Friends of the Library, Marta Robertson, Dynamic Horizons, and Flamingo Palace for supplying critical last-minute items that “saved the day.”

On behalf of the Ogle County Historical Society and the Ruby Nash Museum, we just wanted everyone to know how much we appreciate you, and we applaud you.

Note to readers: Kathryn Stauffer is vice president of the Ogle County Historical Society.
