Elsie the Cow was one of the ten most popular trademarks of the twentieth century. She lived and is buried in Plainsboro. On the occasion of Elsie's 80th birthday, Bill Hart, author of Plainsboro, will describe how Elsie came to be "born" at the 1939-1940 New York City World's Fair and how she evolved out of one of many Borden advertising caricatures of the 1930s into the Spokescow of the Borden Dairy Company. The event is free and open to all. After the lecture, participants are invited to visit Elsie's exhibit at the Historic Wicoff House Museum on the Plainsboro Township municipal complex grounds.

Plainsboro Recreation Center, 641 Plainsboro Road, Plainsboro, NJ 08536
