The evening of March 4 was well spent with the Brownhelm Historical Association as they hosted me to speak about the rum runners of Lake Erie. Their township saw much activity in the smuggling of illegal alcohol during Prohibition, and it was fascinating to hear their stories following the program. Attendance was larger than I expected with a head count around 80. Also in the audience was a group of high school students and their history teacher for an extra credit assignment. It was a privilege to talk to them and I hope they enjoyed my program. I can't say enough how impressed I am with Brownhelm's association members. These are very dedicated members who are constantly active in preservation, education and the community. Thank you, program coordinator Eric for the invite, BHA for hosting me and the students for your attendance.
