The Obed Wild and Scenic River will be hosting another Memories of the Obed program on Saturday, November 8, at 2:00 p.m. (ET). This program will feature Nick Tanner, a long-time Wartburg resident and second generation owner of Tanner's Café, Sundries and Antiques. Memories to be shared include childhood adventures at Potter's Falls, fishing adventures on the Emory and Obed Rivers, raccoon hunting, and log cabin construction. No reservations are required to attend this free program. The program will be held inside the Obed Visitor Center, located at 208 North Maiden Street in downtown Wartburg.

This program is one in a series of programs which explore the unique river-related memories of local individuals. Each program features a different speaker discussing their memories of life in the vicinity of the river, providing a window into what life was like in more simple and self-sufficient times.
