Feb. 1st – “Bernie”- Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  In the tiny, rural town of Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was one of the town’s most beloved residents. He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependent on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. Bernie continued to handle her affairs, and the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie. The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was being charged with the murder.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 2/1, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 2/2, 8:00 pm.    www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669

Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependent on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands.

HISTORY: 7:30 PM at The Museum at The Creamery, 28 Hannum St.

Charles Loring Elliott (1812-1868) was one of the most prominent American portrait painters of

the 19th century. His works hang in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery in

Washington, D.C., the Everson Museum in Syracuse – and in the Skaneateles Library, where nine

are on display. Visitors to the library often ask about these portraits. Who are they? Now,

thanks to research by Sally Holben, these former Skaneateles residents have been identified.

Dannette Davis, librarian at Seymour Library in Auburn, will present a slide show and will share

the stories of these portraits and the artist who painted them.
