Ms. LeBedis spoke of the history of witches and what their role was in England during the 17th century and how the out growth of witches began in Salem, Mass.

She was quite humorous as she entertained a full house of Westport Woman’s Club members at their monthly luncheon.

Ms. LeBedis also presented interesting stories of local legends and witches from Westport past.

She continues to lecture on the existence of witches, ghosts, goblins and gremlins.
