Silverman to Speak Aug. 15

EDWARDSBURG–Ann Sakaguchi Silverman, Edwardsburg High School’s retired home economics teacher, will speak about women’s tools for the Edwardsburg Area Museum’s August program. Her topic coincides with the next display on Tools Around the House.

Her presentation will be at 7 p.m., Thurs., Aug. 15, the day the exhibit opens. There is no admission charge.

Silverman had a 36-year teaching career, the last 28 of which were in Edwardsburg. She received her Bachelor of Science from Manchester College, and two master’s degrees, one in general education and the other in family studies, both from Purdue University. She taught home economics and biology at the high school level in Warsaw and Brown County, Indiana, and home economics at John Adams High School in South Bend, and in Edwardsburg.

The tools display will feature a vintage collection of tools from the museum’s inventory and several items on loan from area residents.
