OSHER BROWN BAG LUNCH & LEARN

JULY 24
A National Treasure:  The Appalachian Trail (and Random Acts of Kindness) - Every summer, Norwich and Hanover streets fill with Appalachian Trail “through hikers”:  NOBO’s (or north bounders) who began their hike in Georgia in early spring, and SOBO’s headed for Georgia from the trail’s northern terminus at Maine’s Mount Katahdin.  Who are these people and what motivates them to commit to such a demanding trek?  Why, for example, would a 67 year old grandmother set out to hike the entire trail in 1955?  What’s life like out there?  Is it becoming overcrowded?  Is it safe in light of a recent vicious attack and homicide?  What has Hanover and Norwich done to become official “AT
Hiker-Friendly Towns”?  Hear from current AT hikers passing through and local volunteer “Trail Angels” supporting through-hikers on their quests. 
Presented by OSHER instructor Gregory Cook.
 
AUGUST 28
Sailing the World - OSHER Instructor and lifelong sailor Priscilla Clark, along with her husband Don, spent 16 years exploring the world aboard their 38-foot sailboat, Chautauqua.  They visited over 40 countries and sailed tens of thousands of miles (Canadian Maritimes, Caribbean, Europe and the South Pacific).
