During the social hour following our presentation, look for Rebecca Summer, a graduate student in the Department of Geography at UW-Madison. For her master’s thesis, she is collecting stories about people’s past and present experiences at the Garver Feed Mill. Rebecca will be at the East Side History Club meeting on September 28. Please be sure to say hello if you have a story you would be willing to share. She can also be reached at rsummer@wisc.edu.
