Event Details

Aluminum Specialty’s dazzling Evergleam Aluminum Trees are still adding sparkle to the Holidays! Join your guides--aluminum tree enthusiast and aficionado of all things wonderfully wacky and tacky, Barb Bundy-Jost, and fellow Manitowoc Aluminum Kitsch-Mas Inc. devotee and Collector Extraordinaire, Jordan Kabat—at 6 PM on Thursday, December 29, as they take you on a virtual stroll through the Enchanted Evergleam Forest at MPL.

You'll learn the story behind this Manitowoc company’s Atomic Age innovation and design. Insights, rarities, and interesting trivia on the glitzy wonder will be shared at every turn! As an added bonus, Barb and Jordan will be joined during their Virtual Tour by a panel of people present during the original manufacturing of these glistening wonders: Darlene Wellner, Ginger Baryenbruch, and Garrel (AKA Gary) & Audrey Mahlock—production line workers—as well as Gerald (AKA Butch) and Claudette Waak, Jr. An interesting and exciting panel that will definitely add some Spice to the Sparkle!

This Virtual Tour through the holiday razzle-dazzle will be livestreamed on Manitowoc Public Library’s Facebook page: Prepare to SPARKLE and be amazed!
