1936 – Janette Serrec Appears in Janesville

On this date nationally known lecturer Janette Serrec started a four-day “charm school” at Janesville’s Apollo Theater. The event was sponsored by the Janesville Gazette and WCLO radio station. The presentation was augmented by Serrec’s “Charm Chat,” broadcast on WCLO and hosted by the radio station’s “stylist” Villette Du Cray. In her presentation, Serrec urged women to “dare to be your age. No woman need ever be ugly, withered and old. Age should be only a ripening, not a withering of the beauty of a woman.” [Source: ]
