"History of Trombley/Centre House"
with Patrick Trombley, Patricia
Anspaugh & William Wright
Trombley/Centre House is the oldest frame house still standing in
Bay County, built in the classic "Greek Revival Style” popular in the mid-west from 1820-1840. Since being moved
from its original site near 24th and Water Streets, the restoration of the home has become a constant effort of
many dedicated volunteers under the guidance of the Bay County Historical Society. Its historic herb
garden is maintained by the Olde Thyme Herb Society, an affiliate group of the BCHS. Join members of the Trombley/Centre House Committee for a look back at the history of the structure and renovation plans
for the future.
SPECIAL NOTE: Following
the presentation at 2:30pm members of the Trombley House Committee will offer a tour of the house (weather permitting) at
901 JFK Drive. There is no admission charge.

Storm: A Maritime
Visual Concert Experience
with Ric Mixter& Dan
Washington Avenue, Bay City
General Admission: $10.00/person
It's fair to say that
most of the stories of shipwrecks on the Great Lakes have been lost to the ages. Thousands of ships--from sailing schooners
to steel freighters--have vanished from these inland seas. The causes of these accidents varies, from collisions to fire and
strandings. But November gales are the most notorious, appearing with little notice during the month when shipping companies
are scrambling to get their final loads acrss the lakes before the freeze-up.
Storm remembers these terrifying gales and
the survivals of sailors who were caught in the tempests. Combining actual eyewitness interviews with spellbinding underwater
video, the presentation fuses contemporary music to create a history lesson that cannot be forgotten.
Ric Mixter hosts
Storm, transporting the audience back to the age of sail and steam. Dan Hall provides the melody, with lyrics derived
from historical accounts of survivors. Dan's songs are as powerful as the massive modern freighters he heralds in "Thousand
Foot Keel," and his amazing voice provides requiem to those lost to the lakes.
