6PM, Friday, February 19 – The Donner Party Inside Story

Special Guest Speaker: Tom Fay, Donner Party Descendent

snow-covered-pine-treesIn 1846, the Donner Party wagon train, after taking a short cut from the Oregon Trail, suffered set-back after set-back on their trek to California, finally being tragically snowbound near Truckee Lake where almost half the group perished.

As a direct descendant of the Breen family from these pioneers, LPC member Tom Fay began speaking about the Donner Party during a KCET pledge-week rebroadcast of Ric Burns’ 1992 PBS special on the fateful journey.  Tom has spoken extensively about this tragic event in California history, including an NPR Weekend Edition interview with Scott Simon, the keynote address at the Donner 150th anniversary celebration, and 10 years of annual presentations to 4th graders at Top of the World Elementary School.

Backpacks for Refugee Children: During the evening, 3rd Friday will also kick off a weekend of opportunities to assemble World Vision refugee kits to be sent to camps in Syria, Lebanon or Jordan. All supplies provided for $22 per kit, includes shipping.

All are welcome! Potluck Dinner.
