Prosperity, Prohibition, & Pontiac in the Roaring Twenties

For several years Clarkston offered Ghost Walks through the town.  It ended after it became hard to find volunteers to staff it.  Fortunately there's a version in Pontiac and it's in a cemetery and it benefits the historic Oak Hill Cemetery.  This year the theme is Prohibition related, a topic I've been bringing to libraries and museums with my "High Times in Dry Times" program, so I'm delighted to be part of this look at people from the Roaring Twenties.

My favorite story is of the bootlegger, Albert Nelson, who was also a cornet player, so people would go to the back of the jail to hear him playing.  All six stops will be safely spaced and masked.

Take a good look at the facts on the above poster and I hope to see you there!
