am so happy to announce that after some intense discussions with the EVE
board; director, Peter Huston, and writer, Kelly Boyer Sagert, we have
decided to move ahead to complete our documentary about Victoria Woodhull
on our own. What this means is that we will not be actively seeking foundation
grants, but will be using the funds from our murder mystery fundraiser
from January of 2020 and counting on the support of all of you to help
us make this film. (As you may remember, much of our funding for TRAIL
MAGIC came from people who gave less than $100!) Of course, this means
scaling back the scope of the project a bit, but it will allow us to move
forward after having lost so much momentum during the COVID shut down.
If you would like to help "make a movie", now's your chance! All donations
are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.
In the meantime, you can hear more about this gutsy gal at the Lorain Historical Society on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 11 a.m. when we present the storytelling program, MADAM PRESIDENT - THE STORY OF VICTORIA WOODHULL. I hope you will join us at the Historical Society at 329 W. 10th St. in Lorain Ohio for that event. For more information or to purchase tickets ($5.00/person) call the Society at 440-245-2563.
We're also looking forward to the premier of our new storytelling program about Cleveland Browns Hall-Of-Famer Dante Lavelli. HE JUST WANTED TO PLAY BALL: THE DANTE LAVELLI STORY will be presented on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 7 p.m. for The Rocky River Historical Society at Beach School at 1101 Morewood Parkway in Rocky River Ohio (parking is off Detroit Rd.). It is FREE and open to the public. For more information, call 440-331-4614. We are also planning another presentation in December for the Italian American Museum of Cleveland, so be sure to check our calendar for information about that presentation when it becomes available. All of us at EVE are looking forward to seeing everyone at a program again soon!
