Prime Timers – Abraham Lincoln Portrayal

February 6, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Prime Timers Program and Lunch

$8. Register by Jan. 31

 

Get a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself (portrayed by Kevin Wood) of the history of the United States of America during his time.

Learn about his childhood on the frontier to the twelve turbulent years from 1854 to 1865 which nearly destroyed our young nation but instead eventually resulted in a “new birth of freedom.”

Lincoln quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, and he also talks about his own inspiring story, of how he rose from a humble background to the highest office in the land through self-study, hard work, ambition, and a strong moral character.

Farm Bureau members are welcome to attend this historical program on Monday, Feb. 6, 2023 at 1 p.m. in the Farm Bureau Theater.

President Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter who bears a remarkable resemblance to “the Great Emancipator” and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times.
Wood has been portraying Mr. Lincoln since the year 2000, and on a professional basis since 2015. He has made over 1,500 appearances in 31 states plus Washington, DC and two foreign countries: Canada and Spain. He also writes a blog – “Loath to Close… Still!” – which encourages others to reflect upon and learn from President Lincoln’s life and legacy.

Prior to this program, lunch will be served in the Farm Bureau Auditorium at 12-noon for Prime Timers, Farm Bureau members 55+ years. Lunch fee is $8, payable by Jan. 31, 2023 at the Farm Bureau office.
