Civil War Lunch and Learn at Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center
ENID, Okla. — The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center in Enid will host a free Brown Bag Lunch and Learn presentation on Wednesday, November 14, at noon. Speaker Craig McKinley will discuss his family’s Civil War history. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunches and learn something new about this chapter in America’s history.
While visiting the center for the Brown Bag Lunch and Learn, be sure to stop by the J. E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation Gallery to see the exhibit “The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community” before it closes on November 17.
