ONLY ONE MONTH AWAY! PASS THE WORD!
Parking is available along Sand Road – Bring your own lawn chairs! We are presently working on our one-hour program – believing our day will be a true representation of the rich diversity found in our Johnson County heritage – honoring the Meskwaki people, the African-American presence, and the earliest American fur-traders that brought everything together in the 1830’s.
Join us for a special Meet The Phelps Family Day – Friday – September 2nd – State Historical Society Research Center – 402 Iowa Avenue – Iowa City
As part of our Remembrance Park Dedication Weekend – drop by the State Historical Center, meet Marybeth Slonneger – author of Remembrance Park, and see some of the rare family heirlooms from the Phelps family, brought here for one day only by our friend, Jo Kelly – a relative of William & Sumner Phelps – fur traders who worked closely with Native American tribes – including the Meskwaki people of Johnson County. More details here.
Do you have a copy of Marybeth’s book? This beautiful volume has a limited printing and it makes a wonderful gift for those who appreciate our rich heritage here in Iowa. Learn more here.
Word of mouth, quite honestly, is the best form of marketing & promotion. We are so thankful for, but, there’s so much more work to do. You can help by sharing our Remembrance Park story with friends and neighbors. We are particularly interested in reaching young people in Johnson County, and those who represent the rich diversity of our county. Anything you can do to spread the message of Remembrance Park will be greatly appreciated.
We hope to see you soon! Thank you for journeying with us. Until next time…
Peace & Joy…
