The Kewaunee County Historical Society has released the schedule for its annual series of February talks.
The History Series, 1 p.m. Saturdays for four weeks, features an hourlong presentation followed by a light social and refreshments at the society’s History Center (pictured), 217 Ellis St., Kewaunee.
This year’s lineup begins Feb. 8 with Jim Rabas talking about “Growing Up in the Sixties,” reliving the days and major events of that tumultuous decade.
On Feb. 15, David Lea will present a program about the history and culture of the Potawatomi Indian Nation, which spread across what is now Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties, with a special focus on Simon Kahquados, the last Potawatomi chief of Kewaunee County.
The Feb. 22 presentation takes the group overseas as Ben and Melissa Joniaux share a story of “Rambling Through Belgium” on a journey to explore the country where they and many other Kewaunee County residents’ families trace their heritage.
In the final program Feb. 29, Mark Teske will talk about what it was like attending a one-room schoolhouse, with a spotlight on schoolteacher Erna Schwantes Teske.
Attendance to the KCHS Annual History Series is free of charge.
