Prohibition in Scott County Thursday, February 27th from 7-8 pm at Oldenburg Brewing Company, 116 W. Main, St Belle Plaine, MN 56011
In January of 1920, the United States began a ban on the sale of alcohol. This launched the period known as prohibition, an era noted for a decrease in alcoholism, but an increase in lawlessness. In this "Scott County Stories" talk, learn what led to this monumental undertaking, and how the people of Scott County reacted to the 18th amendment. Join us to hear the stories of bootleggers and homemade stills in your backyard during prohibition – and enjoy a pint or two of Oldenburg’s craft beer!
Hands on Art: Chinese Brush Painting Wednesday, March 18th from 4-6 pm at the Belle Plaine Library: Learn to paint natural scenes with bamboo brushes and ink. We will begin by discussing the properties of bamboo brushes, mark-making techniques, brush strokes, and ink characteristics. Then we will practice painting specific animals, and natural subjects on rice paper.
