Brown Bag Luncheon

The Amelia Island Museum of History invites you to our next Brown Bag Lunch on Wednesday, January 3rd at noon. U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Frank Gallo, will deliver a presentation on the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.  After retiring from the Navy in 1993 Gallo became a docent at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C., where he was able to use his experience as a pilot,  his aeronautical engineering background (not to mention the Smithsonian’s intensive docent training program) to teach visitors about the rich history of American aviation.  We will discuss the history of the institution, cover the beginnings of commercial air transportation, and profile some of the museum’s most fascinating attractions: like the 1903 Wright Flyer, the Enola Gay, and the SR-71 Blackbird. This program is free and open to the public. Seating is first-come/first-served. For more information contact Gray at 261-7378 ext 102, or gray@ameliamuseum.org. Amelia Island Museum of History 233 S. 3rdSt.
