"Light on a Dusty Path/Experience on the Mercy Ships"
Katie Blackadar, R.N.

Katie Blackadar, RN, will speak about her 10 month volunteer

experience on the Africa Mercy which was docked in Madagascar.

She will show a video outlining one patient’s story and describe

different kinds of operations performed on the ship such as tumor

removals, facial surgeries, and correction of club feet to name a

few.  The number of people needing medical assistance and

surgeries is staggering.  Katie lived in an onboard cabin with

five other volunteers and worked in out-patient care on the ship,

tending to the needs of post-op patients.  Katie’s experience

was very positive, and not only did the Mercy Ship experience

inspire her and renew  her dedication to nursing, it is also

something she would like to volunteer for again.


Volunteers pay their own way and for all their living expenses,

so this is truly a giving experience for the hundreds of

men and women from all over the world who provide their

expertise, love, and dedication to others.

"Victory Gardens During WWII"
Lisa Lutts


During this illustrated talk, learn how American housewives were

galvanized into their own war efforts during World War II

revolving around all aspects of food.  Rationing, price controls,

shortages, as well as transportation and production issues

affected how American housewives managed one of the

most fundamental aspects of our lives—our mealtime.  We will

look at how women planted Victory Gardens, canned, dealt

with rationing, cooked with new recipes, and fed their family

the best they could during this difficult time in our nation’s history.


On display will be cookbooks and pamphlets from World War II

that helped housewives coped when many of their favorite foods

were not available.
