Teddy Roosevelt A Smashing Success

On Tuesday, May 22, BACT hosted Teddy Roosevelt reprisor, Joe Wiegand, at the Sanfilippo Carousel Pavilion in Barrington Hills. Joe has been featured as President Roosevelt in “The Men Who Built America” on the History Channel and has a feature role in the “National Parks Adventure” film. He has also appeared at the White House in Washington, D.C.
Joe came in character and regaled the crowd of over 200 with stories about Teddy and his fascinating life in politics and conservation.  This fabulous evening included dinner, drinks and entertainment as well as the opportunity to tour the steam engines housed in the Carosuel Pavilion and ride the carousel.
This magical evening was sponsored by:  John and Meredith Klaas
