Registration begins March 1st
Held in the Community Room
The women of the 1940's planted the seeds for the feminist movements of the sixties. The arts opened the door for Icons of music, launched literary careers, and introduced us to the future superstars of stage and screen. Drawing on the necessities of World War ll, medicine and science made meteoric advances paving the way for space travel, nuclear medicine, and the conquest of diseases that were death sentences only a few decades ago. 1940's fashions showcase the combination of elegance and modernity. The 40s drove changes in our behavior and thinking that provided the inroads for changes in law and approach to civil rights. Presented by Trish Chambers.
