March 31 - Dinner with a Slice of History
Join us during Women's History Month as author, Harry Haskell, discusses his new novel "Maiden Flight", the true-life story of the "Wright sister," Katharine, who left her world-famous brother Orville to marry the man she loved; the author's grandfather and namesake. Drawing on intimate family letters, this engrossing book crosses the boundaries of fact and fiction to shed new light on an exceptional woman's struggle for independence and fulfillment. For this night only, Katharine’s personal items, not currently on display at the museum, will be available for viewing. This will also be the final weekend to see the original dress Katharine wore to a meeting with President Taft at the White House in 1909. Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. with the presentation and book signing to follow. Seats are limited, please RSVP by March 29. Members $15 and non-members $17.

April 30 - A Celebration in Honor of Margaret Hurlburt
Enjoy an evening out at Rider's Inn in Painesville, Ohio, from 4 to 8 p.m. as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of Margaret Hurlburt setting the women's speed record in a Corsair named "City of Painesville." Hurlburt was a teacher in the Painesville School District before leaving to join the war efforts as a WASP in 1943. Upon the disbandment of the WASP in 1944, Hurlburt continued her dream of flying by participating in air races and air demonstrations, until her untimely death on July 4, 1947.
