“Prohibition: The Grand Misadventure!” - David Jones, Speaker
In 1920, the U.S. entered a period where manufacturing, selling and transporting liquor was prohibited. Perhaps not the intended consequence, but the lawlessness and corruption also became unparalleled in its history! Many Prohibition supporters felt the passage of the 18th Amendment would bring about law and order….and restore family values. However, what transpired made this period one of the most fascinating misadventures of all time! Join the Saints for this fun and interesting presentation by local historian David Jones, Wednesday, August 26th at the Legion in St. Peter! We’ll have drinks that suit the afternoon, and dessert served prior to the presentation. Call us to sign up for this fun afternoon, and learn a little bit about this memorable period in our country!
When: Wed. August 26th
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Where: American Legion
Cost: FREE to Members & Guests
