Silhouette Artist Fundraiser

Silhouette Artist Fundraiser...
This is an old event, from 2012
Experience the timeless artistry of nationally renowned silhouette artist Deborah O'Connor at the New Milford Historical Society. The unique charm of a profile bust of your child, infant, pet or yourself can be enjoyed forever when captured in a silhouette portrait. Using scissors and paper as the only tools, O'Connor creates a cut silhouette in exacting detail and remarkable likeness in as little as five minutes. Silhouettes can be made from live subjects or photographs providing the subject is turned to the right. The cost is $30.00 for an original silhouette, $15.00 for a copy with 8" x 10" mattes available for $10.00 and 11" x 14" mattes for $15.00. Your silhouette will come mounted on your choice of white or ivory cardstock. They make wonderful Mother's Day, Father's Day, Anniversary or Birthday gifts and will become treasured family heirlooms.

The War of 1812: Connecticut and It's People...
This is an old event, from 2012
Lecture by Betty Odenwald, Connecticut Society, US Daughters of 1812 The War of 1812 is often called the "forgotten war". However, to some historians, it is the end of the American Revolution. It established the American right to trade and commerce, it was the spur to Western expansion, and it provided a new sense of nationalism and pride. In 2012, the United States is celebrating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. In New Milford, there are 30 veterans from this war buried throughout our local cemeteries who we want to remember for their service and sacrifice. This engaging lecture will discuss Connecticut as a supporter of the War of 1812 and the approximately 6,000 militia, soldiers and sailors who fought for our freedom. Mrs. Odenwald is from Fairfield, Connecticut and is the President of the Connecticut Society, U.S. Daughters of 1812.
