Never Forgotten, Korean War Memorial Information and History

Welcome Home, Vietnam War Memorial Information and History

Where appropriate, all participants will receive a free mini-US flag at the conclusion of the presentation.

First Ladies, Social Impact, Political Influence, a Closer Look at First Lady history

The First Lady of the United States is not an elected office, yet this position has great power and influence all its own. Many of our country’s presidential wives have used their station to impact society through social causes, others have used their influence in matters of state. Regardless of their personally motivated activity as First Lady, each has left a lasting impression on our country. This program shares insights into their motivations and highlights important contributions.

National Parks, America's Playground

Come and take a virtual tour of the top 10 most visited national parks, and learn some history of how these parks came to be. Hear how an artist had the idea first to protect our natural heritage, and how a president stayed up all night to make sure areas were protected before a law limiting his power was passed. See for yourself some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring places our country has to offer!
