"A Piece of Eden"

On October 30, 2016 an audience of about thirty enjoyed a screening of "A Piece of Eden", a cinema filmed in La Porte County and nearby regions.The story concerned a family orchard and the difficulties and joys which several generations experienced there.
John D. Hancock and Dorothy Tristan

Comments before the screening from La Porte County, Indiana Genealogical society President Dorothy Palmer and The Beacher editor Drew Tallackson enhanced the viewing. A special treat was the insight given by the post-screening comments of the film's director, John D. Hancock, and of Dorothy Tristan, the screenwriter (and Mr. Hancock's wife).
