“The Great Lakes Exposition” by Brad Schwartz
The Great Lakes Exposition was held in Cleveland during the summers of 1936 and 1937, drawing seven million visitors over its two-year run. The exposition was intended to observe the city’s centennial anniversary and to celebrate the Great Lakes Region. It was also hoped that it would help lift the city’s economy out of the Great Depression.
The Royal Order of the Ancient Mariner is a casual group of people interested in Great Lakes shipping – current and historic. This luncheon group is open to all who are interested. They meet the first Wednesday of every other month – starting in February. The current price is $17/person and includes a choice of four lunch options and basic drinks (tea, coffee, soda). We ask that you RSVP to Carrie Sowden if you are planning on attending – firstname.lastname@example.org
