This Study Group will be online

Remember the days long ago when everyone hung their laundry out on the line to dry -- when folks went "online" without the internet? Instructor Anne Lawrence’s slide presentation will show why she (and so many others) love their clotheslines, will explain the lure of the line, and the lore that grew up around it.

There will be washday history, along with sociological issues, the role of feminism, industrialization, culture, and ecology involved. You may consider the clothesline in ways never before appreciated! The sharing of stories and memories will be encouraged. Let's hang out together -- Anne won't leave you hanging.

Anne has been a Clothesline Historian and Hobbyist for the past 40 years, collecting anything she can find that relates to laundry blowing in the wind on clotheslines, and since retiring, sharing her passion with those who remember.

Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed prior to the first session.
