“The Woman’s Club of Evanston: Making a Difference,” a documentary featuring the 125-year history of The Woman’s Club of Evanston, is currently airing daily on Evanston’s cable channel and available on “http://youtube/hitJSlWc5zQ” online.
The show was produced locally by The Reporters, which has filmed more than 20 half-hour segments highlighting stories behind the news in Evanston and surrounding communities. The show’s co-producers, Jim Mizell, Gary Brooks, Connie Reinbold and Dennis King, said they were delighted that the video was completed a little more than a year after filming began at the national landmark clubhouse and released for Women’s History Month.
“It’s our best show yet,” Mr. Mizell said. “It showcases some of the Evanston area’s richest cultural resources in the form of historical photos from Northwestern University’s Archives as well as the Evanston History Center. What’s more, the dramatic progressive era music used throughout the documentary was researched and played by our own Ridgeville Band under the direction of Monty Adams.”
A public viewing and discussion of the video will be held at 1p.m. on March 28 in the Main Library, 1703 Orrington Ave.
