The Burlington Historical Society is welcoming people back from summer break with some tales of the "old days" when RCA was a major player in the town.
"Ed Tkacs is a fascinating guy with a keen memory and lots of stories of the fifties and sixties," a release by Joanne Kinchla. "If the name is familiar, you may have read an article by Ed in our local weekly paper, Burlington Union. Ed has a flair for telling a good story. Ed is also an avid card player, (though I would hesitate to call him a card shark) you can often catch him in the card room at the Burlington Senior Center."
Annual Membership is $15.00 per family and $12 for a single membership. The Historical Society always welcomes new members, guest fee is $2.00.
