Reception at 5:00pm
South Freeport Church
98 S. Freeport Road, South Freeport
There will be a reception then a brief business meeting followed by our annual awards and then a presentation by Kristin Krause, Simon Skold, Jesse Wakeman and Holly Hurd, on the heroic true story of the ship Hornet in 1866. The crew of the Hornet and her Freeport captain, Josiah Mitchell are the subject of Krause’s book and the Freeport High School fall musical, Letters at Sea, written by Skold & scored by Wakeman. The adventurous story of the ship and her crew helped make Mark Twain famous. Students will perform songs from the show.
