Thursday, Nov.19, 7 PM — They Had to Go Out, (origins of the Great Lakes Life Saving Service) with Bob McGreevy, one of the Museum’s regular and favorite presenters on everything dealing with the Great Lakes maritime scene. The program will be held in the Community Room of the St. Clair Museum Building, 308 S. 4th St.
There is a $5 donation; students are free.
The Museum will be open after the Nov. 19 program with refreshments served and additional photos and information displayed.
