CRYSTAL LAKE – A Lunch and Learn event is set for noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Colonel Palmer House, 660 E. Terra Cotta Ave.

McHenry County historian Nancy Fike will present “Are Vegetables Ever Served at a Buffet Luncheon?”  

Fike examines the other mid-19th and early 20th century feminist movement: the Domestic Science movement. The movement was an assault on centuries of drudgery associated with women’s household tasks, in particular, cooking.

On Oct. 11, the Lunch and Learn series features Diana Kenney presenting “Traces our History through Postcards,” and on Oct. 18, Craig Pfannkuche reveals the secrets to “Digging Grandma’s Privy.”

The fee for each program, which includes a boxed lunch, is $15 for nonresidents and $10 for Crystal Lake Park District residents.

Registration is required and may be done online at www.crystallakeparks.org or in person at the Crystal Lake Park District Administrative Office, 1 E. Crystal Lake Ave., Crystal Lake. 

For information, contact Mary Ott at palmerhouse@crystallakeparks.org or call 815-477-5873.
