Cathie Oliphant will present a film titled “Annie Wittenmyer: Civil War Heroine” and talk about the impact she had during the 19th century. We will learn of her many accomplishments, including women’s aid, her association with soldiers and General Grant during the Civil War, the founding of the first public and Sunday schools in Iowa, and many more.
We will continue to collect personal care and home care items through the first part of November.
