Crystal Beach Featured in Carrousel Chat Series

This is extremely short notice, but I thought this event might be of interest to those of you who live in the Niagara Falls area. I would attend it myself if I lived closer! I happened to stumble across an article mentioning that the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum will be hosting a presentation on Crystal Beach Park this Wednesday (tomorrow!), October 7. The event is part of the museum's "Carrousel Chat" series, and the presenter will be Rose Ann Jankowiak-Hirsch, author of the book Crystal Memories: 101 Years of Fun at Crystal Beach Park.

According to CrystalBeachKeepsakes.com, Ms. Jankowiak-Hirsch will be featuring vintage photos and postcards of the park as well as excerpts from her book. She will also be available for book signings after the event. Copies of the book will be available in the gift shop, with all proceeds benefiting the museum. The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. For additional information and directions, visit the museum's web site.
