Great Moments in Polar Exploration
A 4-PART SERIES:
Sundays: March 13, March 20, April 3, and April 10 from 2-4 pm
Professor Dan Breen is back. This year’s lectures cover the many great moments in polar exploration. The history of polar exploration is filled with stories of courage and endurance, as well as triumph and tragedy, that continue to intrigue us today. Dan will reveal the little known facts and nuggets of information that we expect from his lectures.
This year will be a bit different than in past years. We are offering a ‘hybrid’ format. Limited seating for 40 people and the use of the meeting OWL for those who wish to join us ‘virtually’ through Zoom.
Patrons interested in joining us ‘live’ will need to register. Please sign up online . Registration for the first lecture begins on March 4th. Complete the registration form and be sure to enter the total number of people in your party that will attend that day. We will need to have a contact phone and email in case of a cancelation of the weekly lecture. On the day of the lecture, check-in begins at 1:45 pm at the Meeting Room door. NOTE: You will need to sign up each week you wish to attend in person.
