ACTIVE ADULTS Wednesday, February 10, 7:00-8:30 pm The Sea Wing Disaster: Tragedy on Lake Pepin by Fred Johnson The July 13, 1890 capsizing of the steamer Sea Wing and the death of 98 of its passengers horrified Minnesota and the nation. A severe Lake Pepin storm hammered the riverboat, its attached barge, and their 215 passengers during a Sunday evening return voyage to Red Wing. Residents of that city, home to most of the victims, suffered through four days of anguish: the return of 52 of the dead to the city levee on Monday morning, 44 funerals on Tuesday, cannons and dynamite used in hope of raising bodies of the missing, and the recovery of the remaining victims on Wednesday and Thursday. Twin City newspapers rightfully called Red Wing the “City of the Dead,” but small Wisconsin river -bordering communities also suffered. Diamond Bluff and Trenton each saw ten killed. In terms of lives lost, the wreck of the Sea Wing ranks among the most deadly accidents on the nation’s inland waters. Register by February 5. Wednesday, April 13, 7:00-8:30 pm Roger Maris and a Cast of Hundreds by Gregory Rom In this historical narrative, Gregory Rom describes the events in Major League Baseball (MLB) in the years 1957 through 1968. This was a simpler time when there were fewer teams playing in MLB. The American and National League pennant pursuits seemed to unfold with more apparent drama over the course of the summer. In his unique approach, Rom reports on individual games of the leading teams in each pennant race. In those years, the League pennant pursuits led directly to the World Series. Rom summarizes the key games and player performances of each World Series of the twelve-year period. In the midst of his game - by-game narrative, he skillfully interweaves background information to provide a historical baseball context about the most successful players of the era. He even references important historical events in the world, which took place on the same days when some of the important games were played. Register by April 8. DONUT MAKE YOU WONDER?
