UMW to host ‘Annie Oakley’

OSMOND — United Methodist Women will host their annual guest day on Wednesday, Sept. 13. It will take place at the United Methodist fellowship hall, beginning with a salad luncheon at 6:30 p.m., followed by the program at approximately 7 p.m.
The program will feature Charlotte Endorf of Hadar, who will present “The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley.” Charlotte traveled into seven states during the summers of 2015 and 2016 following the journey of Annie Oakley. She met with museum curators and Annie’s family members to delve into the Oakley history. The presentation is one of some 300 programs offered through the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau.
Endorf specializes in speaking to elementary schools, women’s groups, senior centers and others, describing the story of the platform girls of the North Platte Canteen, the Orphan Train and Annie Oakley. She and her daughter, Sarah, have published 10 books on these and other subjects.
