Cedar Lake Village Events
World War II changed everything and everyone. Women were allowed to work in factories for the war effort. Rosie the Riveter built airplanes, ships and tanks for the Armed Forces. We will recall saving grease for glycerin for use in ammunitions, ration books to buy gasoline and tires, saving scrap metal, going without silk and nylons, planting Victory Gardens, joining Bond drives and working around the clock to help America win the war. We will listen to Walter Winchell, Movie Tone news, and President Roosevelt's talks to make America the Arsenal for Democracy. We'll see how the "Greatest Generation," toughened and hardened during the Great Depression, excelled on the home front as well as in the theaters of war.
Instructor Russ Hutchins teaches U.S. History, Western Civilization, and Economics at Friends University - Topeka. He is a retired public school administrator and educator of 41 years.
