Joan Benoit SamuelsonAs part of their Second Tuesday Speakers Club, the Freeport Performing Arts Center will be hosting a presentation by Joan Benoit Samuelson, the first female Olympic Marathon gold medalist and the creator of the Beach to Beacon 10k. Joanie will discuss the experiences that she has had throughout her life and will take questions from the audience.

Admission is free and the program begins at 7:15 p.m. next Tuesday, October 14th. The presentation should run through about 8:30 p.m. The Freeport Performing Arts Center is located at 30 Holbrook Street, next to the high school, in Freeport, Maine.

The Second Tuesday Speakers Club (2ndTSC) program is modeled on the 19th century Chatauqua speakers who went from town to town for a dollar and a free dinner to speak in a lecture hall before moving on.

Such lectures helped persons to broaden their views of life by being exposed to the experiences and thinking of others, …and so we hope will happen here in this fascinating series.
