The Sentimental Reflections series is an annual production: four DVDs are published each year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, and each is dated with the year, to give each a unique designation. So,for example, there is a Summer 2010 edition and a Winter 2011 Edition. The year of the edition has nothing to do with the contents – these videos are timeless. A selection from Autumn 2009 can be as timely and relevant as the most recent production. We have chosen to eliminate the year from our descriptions to avoid this confusion. Make your choices from the Sentimental Reflections series based on content, not on date or season.
The Autumn 2011 Edition features a company whose mission is to bring back the lost art of building wooden carousels. From the home front to the battlefield, the sounds of the Civil War are celebrated in the On A Musical Note segment. We also go Off The Beaten Path to Saint Joseph, Michigan, a charming community along Lake Michigan known for having one of the best beaches in the country. The legends and lore of the Old West come to life at a festival in Ohio that is the subject of the Time Capsule segment.
