Robert Lamb, a society trustee, will present, “The Naval Lore of the Lakes - 1812 - 1814,” in the downstairs program room at the Hancock House on Friday, April 5, at 7 p.m. It will feature a slide show.
continued The society will also host a presentation coming on Franklin D. Roosevelt Friday, April 12, at the Hancock House by Chris Breiseth.
The Hancock House is a Georgian mansion, a gift of philanthropist Horace Moses, and houses a collection of regional material in its archives, along with an important research and large genealogical library. The society is open all year and houses a gift shop full of books and area memorabilia.
“We invite people to join us at the Hancock House for Bob’s presentation, which is one of an expanded series of programs, events and activities planned for 2013,” Trepanier noted. “It is also an opportunity to enjoy conversation and friendship over refreshments.”
