August Senior Lunch Featuring Living History Storyteller, Dianne Moran, Sharing Stories of the American Civil War

Monday, August 20, Noon–2 PM
Congregation Shaare Emeth’s Simcha Center
11645 Ladue Road, St. Louis, MO 63141
(enter from Ballas Road and park in the North Parking Lot)

Join us for a wonderful show with award-winning storyteller, Dianne Moran, who will engage us in stories of history and romance from the Civil War. Our first story, “A Rose for Emily,” by William Faulkner, captures a mix of human truth and whimsy in this touching view of a Southern aristocrat’s fall from grace. The second tale is one of Ambrose Bierce’s finest. His compelling tale of “The Mockingbird” chronicles the essence of The American Civil War, also known as…the Brothers’ War.

Lunch catered by Jilly’s Cupcake Bar & Café

Each boxed lunch, served prior to the program, comes with chips and a Jilly’s cupcake parfait.
Salad will also be available. Lunch options include:

  • Chicken Salad All white meat, fresh roasted chicken salad on challah egg bread with fresh lettuce and tomato.
  • Chicken Caesar Wrap Crisp romaine lettuce, roasted chicken, tomatoes and a creamy roasted garlic dressing rolled in a flour tortilla.
  • OMG Veggie Grilled portobello stacked with grilled zucchini, peppers and red onions on a toasted focaccia bun with fresh spinach, roasted garlic goat cheese and balsamic syrup.
  • Gluten Free Lettuce Wrap Choose any one of the above choices and the “sandwich” will be served on lettuce instead of bread.
