Aging Partners invites senior citizens and the public to attend a presentation on “The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley” by author and speaker Charlotte Endorf at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, April 6 at the Downtown Senior Center, 1005 “O” St. The presentation is free, but there is a $4 suggested meal contribution for ages 60 and over. Meal reservations must be made in advance by calling 402-441-7154 by April 4.
Endorf’s presentation focuses on dispelling myths and revealing the real Annie Oakley, a star attraction of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. Because her shooting skills made her a champion in a man’s sport, Endorf said Oakley changed ideas about the abilities of women in the 19th century.
The presentation is sponsored by Humanities Nebraska. More information on Endorf can be found at charlotteendorf.com. More information on Aging Partners senior center activities is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: my center news).
