German-American Day to be celebrated at the Wood County Museum


The public is invited to participate in the 20th annual German-American “Story Slam” event on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Wood County Museum.

A brief introductory program will be given by retired BGSU professor Geoff Howes on the topic of Bowling Green’s 1889 German Language newspaper, “Die Post” followed by a “Story Slam.” The “Story Slam” format will allow guests five minutes to share their own stories about any topic related to their German American heritage, genealogy, or German experiences.

Admission is a $5 suggested donation, to go towards funding this event and the Wood County Museum.
