Quick Addition

Here are some of the photos from the “Dinner with the President” event (the one we had to miss due to illness). I thought you might like to see some of the period dress.


Here are the two “Lincoln” re-inactors with our friends,

Pastor Dave & Robin Somers, Vasser, Mich. (behind the Pres. & Mrs. Lincoln)


Here they are, again – in front of a period fireplace


and lastly, another photo of our friends,

Pastor Dave & Robin Somers,

First Baptist Church of Vasser, Mich.

They both love antiques and did a wonderful job of decorating (I didn’t include all of the photos I was sent, but there were LOTS of great antique ‘fainting’ couches, sofas, upholstered chairs, tables, lots of oil lamps, etc.). I was quite surprised at just how many people came in period costumes – I’d say at least half of the group (which, from looking at the photos, was around 75-100 people!). Sorry we weren’t able to go, but was really happy when Robin sent me the photos.

Enjoy your day, it’s 32 degrees F. and snowing!



PS: For those of you who might not have read the other blog entry about the above event – the President & Mrs. Lincoln are the actual portrayers who work at the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Museum in Springfield, Illinois!

  1. I always wondered how many hours it would take a woman to get dressed back then – looks like so many layers!

  2. A fascinating post Pam. I’ll bet you really felt bad about having to miss the presentation.
