Full Moon Bonfire with Storyteller Cherrie Beam-Callaway as MORIAH MONAHAN: The Courage to Continue…Changing Homesteads in Nebraska

July 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Wostrel Family’s Union Orchard (2405 S. Hwy. 75 – Union, NE) for their 2018 Humanities Nebraska Speakers at the Orchard series!


This is a sequel to the program “Promise in a New Land.” ┬áBeam-Callaway, in period attire with Irish brogue, depicts Nebraska life on the prairie, 1870 to 1885. Based on historical fact, she continues her story in dramatic Chautauqua-style presentation. Selling the homestead, they begin again as cattlemen in the desolate Sandhills. Relive trials of building the sod house, lightning storms, crying for rain, rattlesnakes, and the never-ending wind. Delight with the 4th of July, Christmas, and American pride. The program has a sequel entitled “Grit-n-Gumption.” This program is appropriate for all ages.
