What does an inventor, actress aviator, philanthropist, military service person and author have in common?
They’re all from Shelton, and they — along with others — will be at a special presentation on Sunday, June 1.
Twenty citizens from Shelton’s past and present will convene to discuss their lives and how important events shaped them and the community.
Their lives have been researched by members of the Shelton Historical Society and will be presented using first-person accounts blended with theatrics.
Connecting the past and present
“This program will certainly reflect the Historical Society’s mission to create a meaningful connection between past and present generations,” said Sandy Nesteriak, who researched and organized the program with Joyce Donnelly and will serve as narrator.
“Reaching all the way back to 1668 and covering present day people as well, we will tell the stories of people from different walks of life as well as from all areas of town,” Nesteriak said.
Admission is $5, and will benefit the historical society. The event will be at 1 p.m. at Plumb Memorial Library, 65 Wooster St. Refreshments will be served.
