'Cathedral Mice' presented twice Nov 19

From their humble beginnings at a 1960 craft fair where all 25 mice sold for $1 each, to today's 3,000-mice-a-year output, the Cathedral Mice of St. Paul’s are a phenomenon and an engaging tale. Ruth Du Frane will tell their story at two programs on Thursday, November 19: at 2 pm and repeated at 6 pm at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The programs are free. No registration required.

Du Frane has been working with the mouse program for many years, originally as Agnes Edwards’ helper and now as Mouse Factory director. She’s also designed several mice over the years.

Cathedral Mice of St. Paul’s is one of the library’s History at Home program series, which focuses on local and state history on the third Thursday of the month (there is no program in December).

The following programs in 2016 all will be presented twice: at 2 pm and repeated at 6 pm:

  • January 21: Why We Love the Packers
  • February 18: The Alaska Gold Rush
  • March 17: Fond du Lac’s Irish Community
  • April 21: Blue Men and River Monsters
