The Waupaca County Association for Home and Community Education will host a program about the history of jewelry at two different times and locations Thursday, Sept. 2.
The program will be offered at 1 p.m. in Room 1037 at the Waupaca County Courthouse, Waupaca, and at 6:30 p.m. at Angelus Retirement Center in Clintonville.
Nearly all cultures in all parts of the world adorn themselves with some type of jewelry. It is given to loved ones, cherished as heirlooms and worn as a personal decoration or symbol of social relationships.
Marilyn Herman, the family living educator with the University of Wisconsin Extension office in Waupaca County, will lead a discussion on what makes jewelry special. Participants are asked to wear or bring a special piece.
Preregistration would be appreciated by calling Annette at 715-258-6224 or Marilyn at 715-258-6225 by Aug. 30. The program is free and open to the public.
