You can’t have a lemon without a lemon tree. With this in mind Elsie Quirk Library has two tree themed activities. Start by posting the “Zest thing about Englewood” on our “tree” near the audiobooks.
Next step into the Golden Garden where we ask you to share your favorite Englewood memory. Personal history is a vital part of our celebration this year, and we’d love to hear what your best memory in the community is, whether it’s your first year in Englewood or your one hundred and first.
While you’re at Elsie Quirk check out half of the series of photos provided by the Englewood Camera Club spotlighting our local residents in a Still Life Cracker Fair. You can hear many of their stories in their own voice on the website as well (bit.ly/LBF2021).
While you’re gearing up for Steve Koski’s talk on the Hermitage site, you might be interested in a fun fact about the location. When the petition for preservation of the site was made with the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Place, the identification of the site as a nudist resort played a role in cementing its importance.
