White Lake Area Historical Society resumes in-person meetings, features local students

The program for the Thursday, June 24th special meeting of the White Lake Area Historical Society at Ferry Memorial Reformed Church in Montague features the 2021 Michigan History Day State Contest finalists and special award winners.  The public is welcome and asked to respect social distancing during the program.

 Presentations will start at 7:00 p.m.  This is the first time that the students’ entries will be seen live by anyone, as all the judging this year was all virtual.

Featured on the program will be exhibits, documentaries, performances, and websites which were researched and developed by eleven members of the White Lake National History Day Team from Ealy Elementary, Whitehall Middle School, Whitehall High School, and Montague High School.

The topics relate to the 2021 theme Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.  They range from the development of written language to Martin Luther, cryptography, the Holocaust, Cold War issues, environmental activism, the milk carton campaign, and Woodstock.
