Jennifer Crooks will be the speaker for this part of local history that has not been talked about very often. We have heard a lot about the World War II days, but the First World War had quite an impact both nationally and locally. Her illustrated presentation will highlight how our residents reacted to those times, how the constructing of Camp Lewis affected our local culture, and how women made many gains during that time. We know you’ll enjoy this fresh view of a nearly forgotten time in our past.
“Heritage Builders” is the local history program of the Olympia Tumwater Foundation. Thank you to our program partners, the City of Tumwater and Thurston Community Media.
Free admission: donations gratefully accepted. The doors open at 11:30 a.m., the program begins at noon and close at capacity.
