Monday Program Remembers Palm Sunday Tornado in Sheridan

Janis Thornton

Sheridan area residents who experienced or had family who experienced the 1965 Palm Sunday tornado outbreak that came through Sheridan will not want to miss an exciting program presented by the Sheridan Historical Society Monday at 7 p.m. at the Museum at 315 S. Main St.

The program will feature Janis Thornton who has authored a new book about the Palm Sunday outbreak. She will review her book and then would like to hear stories from residents who lived through that terrible experience. Sheridan lost 12 souls that day and each of those families has a story to tell. If you or someone in your family experienced that tornado, this will be a program you will not want to miss. The Thornton book will be available for purchase at the program and the Historical Society will also have extra copies available for sale.

The event, which will take place in the Jeanne Corrnell Theatre inside the Museum, is open to the public. It begins at 7 p.m. and last until all the stories are told and questions are answered. Light refreshments will be served.
