Kandi Carle: "Victorian Lady-Dressing from Corset to Gloves"
Kandie Carle has been working in the theatre for her entire career as an ac-tress, dancer, singer and director throughout the US and abroad. She is currently the Producing Artistic Director of the East Haddam Stage Company in CT in addition to touring throughout the country with her one-woman programs. Ms. Carle created The Victorian Lady to share her passion for the life history reflected in the garments of every day men and women. She has performed at venues including CT Historical Society, Victoria Mansion in Portland Maine, the Cosmopolitan Club in NYC, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the West-gate Hotel in San Diego CA, and the Yacht Club of Savannah GA, among others. The presentation is not a fashion show; rather, Ms. Carle dresses from corset to gloves, with authentic as well as reproduction garments, taking her audience on a journey of discovery by using clothing and accessories as a tool to reflect the era. Throughout the presentation she shares insights into the fashion, lifestyle, manners, and etiquette of men, women and children. Included are interesting anecdotes and ‘myth busting’.

Women's Circle Breakfast
The Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark Univ. is the first and only institute of its kind. It is home to a uniquely rich undergraduate program and a landmark doctoral program. Since it was established in 1998, it has gained international standing as the sole program to train students for Ph.D. degrees in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Our speaker today is Prof. Christopher Davey, Visiting Asst. Professor of Genocide Studies and Genocide Prevention at the Strassler Center. His topic is “The Rwandan Genocide: From Independence to Recovery.” Rwanda, like many colonized African states has a turbulent history of struggles for independence, minority discrimination, and civil war. Yet, the mass violence of 1994 in Rwanda and its regional impact is unlike other events on the continent. From April to May 1994, at least 500,000 Rwandans died at an unbelievable pace. This presentation offers a before, middle, and end view of this genocide, including questions about the legacy of the genocide in contemporary Rwanda and the region, based on Prof. Davey’s current research.
We feel fortunate to live in a community where the Residents are friendly and the staff greets us by name.
