Celebrate Eleanor Roosevelt’s Birthday

Celebrate Eleanor Roosevelt’s birthday at the party for her on October 11. It will be the 130th anniversary of the birth of a very special First Lady and humanitarian who cared deeply about what was happening at Arthurdale from the 1930s on. Join us in celebrating her memory and accomplishments in the Center Hall. Elmer Rich, a well-known regional fiddler, will play for everyone just as he did for Mrs. Roosevelt when he was a teenager. Great food will be a part of the celebration too, of course.
