NLMS 34th Annual Meeting & Cruise!
Sunday, November 5
Come for the meeting, then stay aboard for a memorable tour.
Join us for a brief 34th Annual Meeting on Sunday, November 5, from 12:30 to 12:50 -- just 20 minutes.
After that we're off on a high-speed ferry ride out to Block Island and back to return to New London 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.
A brief 20-minute Annual Meeting takes place aboard the ferry prior to the trip. All NLMS members are welcome to attend the meeting without charge. (Following that, non-ticketed members will depart the ship.)
Suggested donation is $50 for NLMS members, $65 adults, $20 children ages 7-16. There'll be box lunches, mojitos, & cake.
Register here online 24/7
or call 860-447-2501.
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.
