NLMS 34th Annual Meeting, Lunch, & a Cruise!
--on a boat, with Steve Jones, & cake.
Sunday, November 5
Come for the meeting, then stay aboard for a memorable tour.
We meet on the Jessica W, Cross Sound Ferry, 2 Ferry Street, New London, CT. Parking is available in the Cross Sound Ferry lot.
Join us for brief 20-minute Annual Meeting aboard the ferry prior to the trip -- from 12:30 to 12:50 -- just 20 minutes! All NLMS members are welcome to attend the meeting (only) without charge.
After the meeting ticket-holders sit back and relax on a high-speed ferry ride out to Block Island and back by 3:30 PM.
On our way out, Steve Jones will provide an eclectic narration encompassing Ellery Thompson, the Malloys, the Larchmont, and Admiral Hardy - to name just a few. Why go to Block Island? Because that's where all the bodies are, Steve says.
$50 for NLMS members, $65 others, $20 children ages 7-16.
There'll be delicious box lunches (Montauk House Cafe), mojitos (Real McCoy Run and Katie Bradford), & cake (The Cake Lady).

about Steve Jones: in addition to teaching at UCONN for 30+ years (literature, the environment, and aspects of the sea), Jones, a former USCG lighthouse keeper, has made films and published books about the region's maritime history.
We thank the Cross Sound Ferry for generously providing the boat.
