 “An Evening with Mark McDonald”
The Elkhart Historical Society is pleased to bring author D.L. Dennis to the Wild Hare Café for the May 11th dinner lecture entitled, “The Witwer Files”.  The story takes place in a small Midwestern village in the early 1900’s that was terrorized by uncontrolled violence.  Murders and suicides remained unsolved and unstopped as the responsible law enforcement either turned in their badges or disappeared.  Come hear first-hand how the author’s grandfather arrived in the village and what circumstances occurred that changed the course of town’s future in this fascinating story inspired by actual events. Autographed copies of Dennis’s book, “The Witwer Files”, will be available along with his other books.  Motivational speaking, and artwork round out the additional talents of this fascinating man, please be sure to reserve a space before the May 7th cutoff.
The event will be held at Horsefeather’s Wild Hare Café on Friday May 11th at 5:30p.  (Doors open at 5:00p) The Dinner will consist of a choice of Beef Bourguignon or Crusted Baked Chicken Breast, each entre served with mashed potatoes, carrots and green beans and a freshly baked roll…Fruit crisp or vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for dessert, and beverage, at a price of $40, which includes the meal, tax and tip, and $10 for the Elkhart Historical Society program. Reservations are required and can be made at 217 947 2238.  For more information and a reservation form please click on RESERVATIONS
