Yesterday we had the opportunity to meet Nancy Perzo and Karen Patton (aka The Tea Ladies) to talk a bit about today's ZHS hosted program "In Memory of Our Dear One - Mourning Customs of the Nineteenth Century." They are both delightful! And I can't wait to enjoy their program this afternoon from 1-3 p.m. at the Zionsville Lions Clubhouse. Based on what I learned last night, it should be fabulous! So, plan to take a quick break from today's amazing Indiana weather to join us. Hope to see you there!

We're really looking forward to hosting Nancy Perzo and Karen Patton (The Tea Ladies, Inc.) this Sunday afternoon! They will be presenting one of their most popular programs - "In Memory of Our Dear One" Mourning Customs of the Nineteenth Century - which was created specifically for the 150th commemoration of Abraham Lincoln's funeral, and which includes some specific information about Zionsville, Indiana's role in this compelling story. Perzo and Patton have had the honor of presenting several programs at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and participated in the PBS documentary "Prelude to the Presidency." Their meticulously researched programs feature a variety of artifacts and audio-visual material and are both interesting and interactive.

Don't miss this fabulous FREE program - hosted by the Zionsville Historical Society - at 1:00 p.m.. at the Zionsville Lions Club.

Hello, I just finished reading a book, and as I closed the cover and set it on the bedside table, I paused for a moment to be thankful to my first grade teacher who got me started with reading. Yes, it was Dick and Jane and Spot, but it all happened in a big school room in the Zionsville Elementary School on the top of the hill. It was 1954. I think my teacher was Miss Smith, but that may be a name from the readers we used. Is there any way to find out who my first grade teacher's name was? Is there a photo archive of my class? My family moved at the end of the 2nd grade to W. Lafayette, and eventually we left Indiana when I was in middle school. None the less I have wondered about my first grade teacher who got me started with the magic of books. Thanks.
