April 24 – As I Recall It; Memories of Historic Times from 1967-1974 by Ellie Swenson
Event Date: 04/24/2022
Select Sundays | 11:15am | Heritage Room & Zoom
Recently, Ellie Swenson, a Parkway member, came across notes, she made to herself, as she contemporaneously reacted to and recorded her impressions of some turbulent times in America from 1967 to 1974. Remember the walk on the moon, more troops in Vietnam, then the pullout, the secret war in Cambodia, the Supreme Court’s approval of school busing, Kent State, passage of the Civil Rights Act, Nixon goes to China, Watergate, Nixon resigns, Gerald Ford becomes President, and pardons Nixon, and on and on.
We will use Ellie’s memories as a springboard to remind our audience of their own recollections, and encourage the sharing of memories of those remarkable and turbulent times. Where were you on July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the lunar surface and famously declared, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.?”
