The 60?s!-Artifacts, Stories and Memories offered at Rhinelander District Library
The public is invited to a nostalgic evening at the Rhinelander District Library Monday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. with a special event: “The 60’s!-Artifacts, Stories and Memories.”
Raymond Quicksilver will bring the 60s alive again with artifacts from people whose influence on this special time is unmistakable, as well as his unique experience at Woodstock and other interesting stories from that era.
Come see the coat worn by John Lennon during the “Sgt. Pepper” Beatles years that he eventually gave to Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix later personally gave the coat to Ray Quicksilver, who is a Milwaukee native and was then living in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.
There will also be two scarves on display that were worn by Janis Joplin at Woodstock, which she gave to Ray at that time. Ray will share the stories behind these artifacts and how he met Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
The audience is encouraged to bring their own “artifacts,” stories, questions and memories from this important period of our history. In addition, wearing 60s “regalia” is welcome. Students are especially encouraged to attend.
This program is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
