The Northeast Georgia History Center at Brenau University invited the community to attend Sunday’s family day event, which focused on the 1940s. The event was held from 1-4 p.m. and provided visitors with hands-on activities, historical performers and several demonstrations that called for volunteers. Titled “The 1940s-War and Peace,” the day was filled with opportunities to learn about the everyday life of people living during that time period.
