The Eudora Area Historical Society will have its September membership meeting on Thursday, September 19 at 7:30pm at Eudora City Hall.

 

The program for this evening will be a presentation titled “Kansas River-kings: Life on the Kaw” by Barbara Higgins-Dover. The program will highlight eight men who lived and fished commercially on the Kaw River from 1890 to 1970.  These men epitomize the struggles faced by early Kansans: hard-working, down to earth, rugged citizens living off the land.  As a descendent of one of the men featured, Ms. Higgins-Dover provides a particularly personal presentation, sharing images and stories and displaying artifacts used by members of her family.

 

This event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
