Featuring Ruthmary McIlhenny with Eisenhower program
Dwight D. Eisenhower will be the subject of Ruthmary McIlhenny’s 3rdthursdaynoon program on May 16 at the Arts Education Center. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Society will celebrate 50 years as a local non-profit organization commemorating the American hero “Ike” Eisenhower and educating others about his life and work. For this milestone anniversary, the Eisenhower Society has created an entertaining PowerPoint program, which Board of Trustees member McIlhenny will narrate, about his extraordinary life and legacy. Beginning with his boyhood life in rural Kansas, to West Point cadet, to Supreme Commander in World War II, to President of the United States, to retirement in Adams County, the program reflects the qualities of character and leadership that made him, in his time, the world’s most trusted figure. The Arts Council’s hour-long program begins at noon and is free and open to the public.
For June 20th’s 3rdthursdaynoon, Jan Powers will present a program about Bosnia in conjunction with an exhibit of her photos.
