    Seventy-five people attended a community conversation October 4, 2007 at the Urbana Free Library in Urbana, IL featuring three women who had very different experiences of WWII. Speaking were Yukiko Okinaga Llewellyn who, as a little girl, was interned with her mother at Manzanar camp in California; Iris Lundin who, as a member of the Marine Corps Women's Reserve, taught navigation to Navy pilots; and Jill Knappenberger who was one of three women serving on the front lines during the Battle of the Bulge. Working for the Red Cross operating a refitted truck dubbed a "Clubmobile," she passed out donuts, coffee and cigarettes to weary soldiers. The event was co-sponsored by WILL AM-FM-TV and the Urbana Free Library. The panel and audience discussion were moderated by U of I history professor Mark Leff.

AND ... A team of Jews from a fledgling North Texas congregation gathered together to share in their love for the game of softball."

                      This wedding video capturing the marriage between Caroline Lavelock and Robert Bratney is presented in a documentary style similar to that of Ken Burns. Given that the event follows a Gatsby-esque theme and creates an atmosphere one might experience in the roaring 20s, I pitched the idea to exhibit their marriage as if it were a historical affair in which documentary-like reflection would appropriately represent Rob and Caroline's wedding day. Music, SFX, and clips used for private entertainment purposes only. I do not own any rights of the photos or clips other than those captured at the wedding and reception.
