6:00 PMThe Day the Music Died



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  
Description:  The 1950s was a time of change in the music world as many new talents ushered in the age of Rock ’n
Roll. Singers/guitarists Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson (aka “The Big Bopper”) were
among those who created a fun-filled musical atmosphere, singing songs that have become Rock classics.
On February 3, 1959, Holly, Valens and the Big Bopper were in the middle of a winter dance party tour
across the Midwest. Deciding to charter a small plane to their next signing destination, the three young
stars flew from Clear Lake, Iowa and into the history books…on The Day the Music Died.

6:00 PMThe World War I Christmas Truce



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  
Description:  With World War I in its early stages and hate between enemies reaching extremely high levels, hope of peace seemed like an impossible dream. On the first Christmas during this Great War, British and German soldiers found themselves in a no-man’s land, trying to enjoy a quiet Christmas Eve in the trenches. Carols soon filled the air, and come Christmas morning, both sides emerged for a day of peace—a Chrismas Truce. Join us as we remember the Christmas Truce of 1914.
Presenter: Jason Kuntz, River Valley Schools

The Day the Music Died
The 1950s was a time of change in the music world as many new talents ushered in the age of Rock ’n
Roll. Singers/guitarists Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson (aka “The Big Bopper”) were
among those who created a fun-filled musical atmosphere, singing songs that have become Rock classics.
On February 3, 1959, Holly, Valens and the Big Bopper were in the middle of a winter dance party tour
across the Midwest. Deciding to charter a small plane to their next signing destination, the three young
stars flew from Clear Lake, Iowa and into the history books…on The Day the Music Died.

Wessel Whitaker and the First Days of New Buffalo
Learn about hapless Great Lakes skipper Wessel Whitaker, who ran his ship aground near what is now Grand Beach in an 1834 storm and went on to found New Buffalo on the shore of Lake Potawatami at the mouth of the Galien River. Although his dream of building a major Lake Michigan seaport never materialized—and although New Buffalo almost disappeared after his death—Whitaker’s town eventually grew up to become a major midwestern resort destination.

The World War I Christmas Truce
With World War I in its early stages and hate between enemies reaching extremely high levels, hope of peace seemed like an impossible dream. On the first Christmas during this Great War, British and German soldiers found themselves in a no-man’s land, trying to enjoy a quiet Christmas Eve in the trenches. Carols soon filled the air, and come Christmas morning, both sides emerged for a day of peace—a Chrismas Truce. Join us as we remember the Christmas Truce of 1914.
Presenter: Jason Kuntz, River Valley Schools
