March 5, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pmFree
Amateur historian Bob Begin, whose presentations on naval history are popular with local audiences, will kick off the History Potpourri class for Wellesley-Weston Lifetime Learning (WWLL) with his talk on “Wooden Ships and Iron Men.” The focus will be the naval war of 1812, featuring the victorious record of the USS Constitution vs. England’s Royal Navy, the world’s most powerful. The talk and others on a variety of historical topics is open to seniors from all communities at Wellesley’s Unitarian Universalist Society (309 Washington Street/Route 16). Seniors are welcome to sample a class session for free or enroll in the 10-week course for $40. For questions about WWLL course offerings, see the wwllcourses.org website, send emails to [email protected], or call (781-205-4204).
