Charlotte Endorf is returning to the GGC!

We are excited to announce that Charlotte Endorf, Humanities Nebraska speaker, will return to the GGC in October:

Excess Baggage: Riding The Orphan Train
When: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
Time: Noon
Where: Lexington Grand Generation Center, 407 E 6th Street


This program, funded in part by Humanities Nebraska, is FREE and open to the public. We hope you will join us for lunch that day and enjoy the fascinating stories. Charlotte will be in period costume and enchant with stories about people who had ridden the Orphan Train and were adopted by complete strangers. The children on the Orphan Train were mostly from the eastern United States, mostly the New York City area. They were put on the train because their parents could not afford to feed them, or they were street kids who had no homes. The trains carried orphans to the west from 1877 to 1926.
