Strong women take center stage at St. Marys Museum seminar

Following a successful presentation about stonemason John Thompson Crellin, the St. Marys Museum is continuing its seminar series with “Women of Strength.” The presentation will feature representatives from the St. Marys Community Players, who will discuss the strong female characters in their upcoming production of Steel Magnolias. The play opens on Thursday, October 27 at Town Hall and showcases the enduring power of female relationships.

Another special seminar guest will be Nancy Vermond. Her project, Life in a Page, is based on the premise that everyone has a story to tell. Vermond encourages people to write their life stories – for their families, for their friends, for historical records or just for themselves. Vermond has encountered many incredible stories while working on this project. She will share one amazing tale about facing adversity and surviving change as part of her presentation.

The seminar takes place Thursday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Resource Area of the St. Marys Museum (177 Church Street South). For accessible parking, take the lane from Tracy Street on the east side of Cadzow Park.

The cost is $12 ($10 for museum members). Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To reserve a spot, call 519-294-3556 or email
