VSC Enjoys Luncheon With The Lincolns
May 31 at the Lakewood Heritage Center, VSC hosted Abraham
and Mary Lincoln (John and Pam Voehl) in their presentation
of "Lincoln's Happiest Day." It was April 14, 1865 as
the President and First Lady prepared for their evening at
Ford's Theater to view the play, "Our American Cousin."
The presentation was preceded by a catered lunch and
followed with Victorian dancing. Our many thanks go to
the Voehl's and to Kimary Marchese who brought this event
Victorian Society Reorganization
Our Victorian Society has emerged from reorganization with the
first event of 2014, the membership social and pot luck at the
Black Forest Community Center held Saturday, January 18.
Enthusiastic Victorians from across the state, from Denver to
Walsenburg, came to show their support for the reborn Victorian
Society. President, Denise Winter, announced that we more
than met our objective of having thirty members sign up for
2014. Denise also reported that since more than half of
our membership resides outside of Colorado Springs, we will
offically change our name to the Victorian Society of Colorado.
Our intention is to be more inclusive and to conduct events
outside of Colorado Springs to include Denver, Pueblo, Canon
City and other locations.
The Board of Directors for 2014 are: Denise Winter, President;
Kimary Marchese, Membership Chair; Annette Mascia, Secretary;
and Board Members, Betty Andrews and Bill Donaldson.
