What the Series Is All About
How Clinton Has Built and Fed the World Speaker Series
The Sawmill Museum will be hosting a winter speaker series titled “How Clinton Has Built and Fed the World.” The series will take place at the museum, located at 2231 Grant Street in Clinton, Iowa. The series is on Thursdays from 5:30pm to 6:30pm and runs from January 12 to March 16. The series is free to the public due to a grant from Silos and Smokestacks. Free admission begins at 5:00pm on Thursday evenings for those attending that day’s session.
The series will cover a variety of topics about industry and agriculture in Clinton and Eastern Iowa in the past and present, as well as the influence of industry and agriculture both locally and globally. Themes covered will include changes in agriculture over the years, the relationship between local and global food streams, the role of family farms, and the relationship between the lumber and agriculture industries. Each week will feature a different speaker.
Speakers will be provided by a variety of organizations, including Humanities Iowa, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, and the Hawkeye Speakers Bureau. Check the museum’s website (http://www.thesawmillmuseum.org/ag-speaker-series.html) for details about individual speakers and presentations. Once again, this series is made possible by a grant from Silos and Smokestacks and is free and open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
