LBS October Luncheon
October 10 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Cost $5 (payable at the door)
Plus a contribution of canned goods or disposable diapers (to be donated to local charities)
The LBS’ popular monthly luncheons resume in October – and will be held on the second Tuesday of every month.
The Tuesday, October 10, luncheon will feature a presentation on some of the most outstanding women from Old Lyme’s history by the husband-and-wife writing team of Michaelle Pearson and Jim Lampos, authors of the book, “Remarkable Women of Old Lyme.”
Among the notable women whom the authors are expected to discuss:
— Phoebe Griffin Noyes, who opened one of the first art schools in America.
— Evelyn McCurdy Salisbury, who owned one of the first typewriters in the U.S. and wrote for several newspapers.
— Katharine Ludington, who was a founding member of the League of Women Voters, corresponded with Albert Einstein and was instrumental in formulating the Fairness Doctrine and Equal Time Act.
— Florence Griswold, who opened the Griswold School for Girls and later became the nucleus of the Old Lyme Art Colony in the early 20th Century.
The luncheon, which is open to the public, will begin at noon. The presentation will start after dessert – around 1 p.m. – and last approximately 45 minutes, including a Q&A with the authors.
The LBS is currently celebrating its 200th year of service to the Old Lyme community.
