LAKEWOOD, CO – On April 6, 2017 Red Rocks Community College will bring history to life with World War I Day, a free community event at the college’s Lakewood campus to commemorate the First World War. This experiential learning event will allow participants to experience living history and understand its effect on the future, while paying tribute to those who defended our country at home and abroad.
Among the activities of World War I Day, which is free and open to the public, are Vaudeville shows, a speakeasy, museum exhibits, historical guest speakers, re-enactments of trench warfare, presentations from academic departments, a display of 1920s vehicles, dance lessons, and staff and students in period costumes.
Faculty and guest lecturers will present topics such as Canadian Experience in WWI and Committee of Information. Dozens of Red Rocks students and staff members will be dressed in period costumes from President Woodrow Wilson to Charlie Chapman to Josephine Baker, plus flappers, suffragettes, keystone cops, and more.
