A look into the past and a glimpse of the future 
 with Leeds Bird & Kathy Pawloski
1:00pm
 
*Location:  1214 Columbus Avenue, Bay City* 
 
 
A power point presentation at Players Theatre on Columbus Avenue will include a trip through Players’ 100-year history from March 19, 1917, to the present. Additionally, the development of the theatre will be illustrated through the many renovations over the years leading to the beautiful and highly practical facility it is today. Players is not celebrating this anniversary by looking back, but has instead taken steps into the second 100 years already. These changes for improvement will also be discussed. Those wishing to enjoy a tour of the theatre will be able to do that after the presentation.

River of Time Living History Encampment
Veterans Memorial Park, Bay City
 
This annual event held on the banks of the Saginaw River in Veterans Memorial Park draws re-enactors from all over the country to dress, work and live as people did from several eras in Michigan's past.  Representing time periods from pre-contact Native Americans, Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, Civil War, and the great World Wars, this free, family-oriented, educational event is a wonderful way to look back at simpler if not more difficult times.  The event brings in thousands of people every year including school groups from all over the area.
