Meet Annie Oakley!

Sharpshooter Annie Oakley competed in a sport and world dominated by men.  Growing up poor, she learned to shoot from practical necessity:  hunting to feed her parents and siblings.  She felt strongly that women were jus as capable as men and insisted that they should strive to achieve any goal or occupation that interested them.  Her motto was to "Aim for a high mark ... for practice will make you perfect," and her hope was that all women would reach the "Bulls-eye of Success."

Join us and meet this inspiring woman as history comes alive when the American Historical Theatre presents Annie Oakley:  "Aim for a High Mark."  This program is funded by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.

When:  Tuesday, March 15 at 11 a.m.
