Local author Kenneth Dickson to speak to Heritage Society
The Point Place Heritage Society will meet on Monday, November 20, at 7 p.m., at the Friendship Park Community Center.
After a brief meeting, the speaker will be Kenneth Dickson, who will talk about the Queen of Burlesque from Point Place, Rose La Rose.
Rose La Rose was a Point Place icon for more than most Toledoans ever thought possible. She was voted one of the 10 most beautiful women in the United States after World War II.
During the Second World War, Rose was responsible for some of the largest Red Cross sponsored blood drives and appeared on the cover of YANK magazine.
