Hello and welcome back to the Hometown Heritage blog!
This week I have an exciting event to tell you all about! Coming up on May 20th, Hometown Heritage will be presenting All About Bacon: A Historic Look at an Iconic Iowa Food. This event features presentations about the enlightening history of bacon in Iowa throughout the years given by Leo Landis. Leo is the Museum Curator at the State Historical Museum of Iowa and the Bacon Professor! As a group of presentations about the history of bacon, bacon breakfast burritos and bacon samples are also included. The samples are provided by Kitt's Locker in Dedham, and the Des Moines Bacon Company.
The event starts at 8:30 A.M. and ends at 12:00 P.M. here at the Carnegie Library Museum in Perry, Iowa. Tickets are $25.00 each and are sold at the Carnegie Library Museum and at the Perry Chamber of Commerce.
We hope to see all of you there!
