I thought the following would be of interest to our members. The Deltaville Maritime Museum is having a lecture series known as the Turner Lecture Series.

The first program will be Sunday March 10th at 2 PM. The speakers will be our own Rick and Julie Palm. In 1990 they began their 2 year voyage around the world on "Sojourner" their 52 foot Tayana sailboat. their sailing resume includes Atlantic crossings, dozens of passages to ther caribbean and decades of coastal cruising from Nova Scotia to Florida.

Our next program will be on Sunday April 14th at 2 PM. The speaker will be Jack Yunker who will present a program on the Liberty Ships that played a major role in our Naval dominance in WWII. There were 2,710 built and only 2 remain. One in Baltimore and the other in San Francisco. Jack is very involved with the John W. Brown in Baltimore where he is an engineering watch officer when the Brown is underway.

The museum requests a $5.00 donation to support the Turner Fund. An R.S.V.P. to 776-7200 would be appreciated.
