A community filled with riches—in the form of Redwoods, Resorts, and Real Estate. Our speaker for the evening is Ronnie Trubeck.

The event is FREE and takes place at 7:00 PM at Park Hall, 9400 Mill Street, Ben Lomond. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. Concessions will include desserts, coffee, and wine.

Park Hall has a rich history; it was established by the Brooks family as a public trust in 1923, for the residents of Ben Lomond. All residents that live within 1.5 miles of Park Hall are part owners of the hall. It is also home to Little People’s Repertory Theater and Mountain Community Theater.

The Life of Isadora Duncan

The remarkable career and revolutionary private life of feminist dancer Isadora Duncan will be highlighted in a performance by Duncan expert Lois Flood on Sunday, January 19, 7pm at Park Hall, 9400 Mill Blvd., Ben Lomond, http://parkhall.benlomond.org/. The performance features segments of fascinating historical narration followed by authentic dancing by Flood wearing a variety of gold, orange and white tunics with the iconic scarves that Isadora used as a dance partner, with readings by guest poet Marjorie Lynne Wagner.
Duncan is considered an icon of women seeking equality and freedom as she rejected the cultural and legal restrictions placed on women in the early 1900’s, suffered many tragedies in her life, and inspired thousands of people with her dancing. Hundreds of families brought their daughters to her dance schools in the US, Europe and even Communist Russia.
Presented by the Valley Women’s Club’s Women’s Issues Committee, www.valleywomensclub.com, the program is free and suitable for all ages. History buffs, dance lovers and those concerned with women’s issues will all enjoy the program. Refreshments will be served. For information call Nancy at 338-6578.
