“Raid! RAID!!” – Presentation by Eileen Aiken English
Apr 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED

 

Eileen Aiken English will be returning to Old Economy Village on April 16th at 7:00 PM with another presentation.

“Raid! RAID!!”

If Count Leon contributed anything to the Harmony Society, it was excitement. His presence not only brought hope to those Harmonists disillusioned with Father Georg Rapp, but brought out the worst in a few nascent activists. During Leon’s prolonged stay at Economy Friedrich Rapp arranged an unexpected raid on his lodgings; the action greatly expedited events which led to the Great Schism. Later at Phillipsburg, the same activists churned a visit to Economy into an aggressive raid that ultimately resulted in the dissolution of Leon’s New Philadelphia Society.

“Marketing the Presidency” – Presentation
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

 

“Marketing The Presidency”
Speaker: Steve Mihaly

Audience members will be shown about 300 items from Steve Mihaly’s, personal collection that visually demonstrates the often unusual ways presidential candidates have marketed themselves to the public in their quest for election, while at the same time the audience will also receive some background on the key issues of the campaign, with a particular focus on showing items distributed in the Western Pa region.

Many of the pieces will be brought to lecture, so that the audience can see them up close after the presentation (which generally runs about an hour) is concluded. It will not be a heavy political presentation, but one that is light and whimsical with lots of laughs.
