  • October 13: Actor, singer, songwriter and lawyer, Jack Casey, will be the guest speaker. Jack will discuss The Trial of Bat Shea, a novel he authored based on a real murder in Troy, NY, in 1894. It involves politics, voter fraud, and class conflict. The novel recounts how a saloon thug set out to steal an election, and how a methodical, flag-waving mob then twisted the law to extract the last final measure of revenge -- a life for a life -- in the name of truth and justice. Come and enjoy Jack's colorful storytelling.
  • November 10 -- special event: Teddy Roosevelt “Revisits” Again, 7:30 p.m. at Sand Lake Center for the Arts. You will remember that, in April, Teddy Roosevelt (a.k.a. Joe Wiegand) “revisited” Sand Lake to a sold-out crowd at The Old Daley on Crooked Lake. That April event was filmed and will be shown in its entirety. We’ll also feature a 1989 interview with Al Coons, then-owner of the Crooked Lake Hotel. Westfield Production Company is generously providing the DVDs, which will be for sale for $15 to the general public and $10 for members of the Sand Lake Historical Society. This is a great gift idea for local history buffs! The event is co-sponsored by the Sand Lake Center for the Arts. Seating is limited, and desserts will be available Watch a preview.
