TRAVEL CLUB: MARCH 28
Many have traveled to Alaska on a cruise ship and enjoyed the beauties of our 49th state. But Bruce and Adrienne Glenn chose to see this vast land in different ways. First trip in 2011: paddling down the Yukon River; enjoying Denali National Park by bus and car; riding the train from Talkeetna to Anchorage; and driving a camper through the Kenai Peninsula with a day of kayaking on Prince William Sound. Second trip in 2014: paddling and hiking through the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. At the First Plymouth Travel Club this month, Bruce and Adrienn Glenn will present their travels in Alaska. The evening will conclude with Nancy Joe and Joe Shaw sharing a few pictures of their adventure last year, climbing over the Chilkoot Pass from Skagway, Alaska to Bennett, British Columbia, following the Klondike Gold Rush trail. For those who wish to come for the potluck dinner, please bring your own table settings and if your last name starts with A-G, please bring a side dish; H-M, a dessert; and N-Z a main dish. Please RSVP to Nancy Joe Shaw by clicking here. All will begin to gather at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 7:00 p.m.

WHAT’S A “SMART” GUN AND HOW CAN IT REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA?
First Plymouth members and friends are invited to come and hear the answers on Tuesday, March 31, when Rabbi Joel Mosbacher of New York tells his story of losing his father to gunfire in a robbery and his full-time dedication to introducing safe gun technology throughout our country. His program is endorsed by the U. S. Conference of Mayors and more than 70 municipalities. The talk will be held at Temple Emanuel (51 Grape Street) from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The First Plymouth Reduce Gun Violence Committee recommends this program as an outstanding opportunity to learn about the smart gun concept in our state.
