ELLINGTON - Take a relaxing break from your holiday planning with the final events of 2013 at Hall Memorial Library, 93 Main St., Ellington. Join Dick Tomlinson and Carol Whitmer on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 6:30 p.m., as they reminisce about a bygone era with Reliving the 1940s-Those Were the Days. Tomlinson will discuss growing up in the 1940’s and how the world looked then. The golden days of radio dominated pop culture, and the sounds of the big bands were all the buzz in the music industry. Whitmer will give a fascinating overview of the revelations of the 1940 census; see how much America has changed since then. Join in the discussion and share your memories of a simpler time.
