Sun Prairie Women Speak Out
Sun Prairie women will speak out at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1st at the Sun Prairie Public Library. Museum board members and volunteers will lend their voices so the ladies of our past can once again be heard.

Writings to be featured are:
Cordelia Long's correspondence to her husband during the Civil War
Dorothy Pond fondly remembering the local activities that heralded the approaching spring
Mae Bork sharing how an apron ended a romance
Fannie Stimson, then a high school junior, relating her experiences that culminated in being named the 1917 Wisconsin State Girl Farmer

Additionally, a special appearance will be made by Mary Batz who will present an excerpt from her own memoirs entitled, Dewey Street Days. The program will be held in the Community Room of the Library.
