Travel back to the 1700s and learn about the important and influential role women played not only in Alexander Hamilton's life, but also the course of the country. Award-winning actress and scholar Leslie Goddard will portray Hamilton's wife, Elizabeth, and will introduce two of her sisters, Angelica and Peggy. Leslie will bring these intelligent and beautiful women to life as she explores how their complicated relationships with Hamilton and other men in their lives helped shape the new nation.
Leslie gives a voice to the women from the past with fascinating stories to tell. As entertaining as it is informational, this program brings history alive in a fun, inspiring, and educational way.
With more than 10 years of experience, Leslie's programs have been presented for hundreds of organizations around the United States. A former museum director, she is the author of two books on history. In addition to a master's degree in theater, Leslie has a Ph.D. from Northwestern University and currently works full-time as a historical interpreter and public speaker.

Indulge in America’s favorite pastime as author and educator Bob Buege explores the golden age of baseball. As a boy growing up, Bob was a huge fan of the Milwaukee Braves, and like so many others, was crushed when they moved to Atlanta in 1965.
Years later, after meeting Hall of Famer and former Braves pitcher Warren Spahn, Bob decided to bring the magic of when the Braves played at County Stadium to life. He is the author of “The Milwaukee Braves: A Baseball Eulogy” (1988), “Eddie Mathews and the National Pastime” (1994), and the soon-to-be released “Borchert Field: Stories from Milwaukee’s Legendary Ballpark” (Wisconsin Historical Society Press, 2017).
Seating is limited, so sign up soon for this major league presentation.
Cedar Crest events are usually located on the Terrace Level of the Independent Living apartment areas. It's for your convenience that we recommend you park close to the apartment buildings. There is a surface parking lot connected to the apartments. It can be reached via the first driveway on your right if you are coming from the North (via State St.), or the third driveway on your left if you arrive from the South (via Kellogg Ave). Watch for blue/green flags near the designated driveway. NOTE: GPS systems will route you to the Main Entrance of the Skilled Care Center. Parking near that area will require you to walk farther to the event site than using the convenient access off the apartment parking lot.
