Thursday April 27, 2017
   4:00 PM  -  5:30 PM Friends Annual Meeting - Afternoon Tea  
   

Open to new friends, old friends, all friends of the library. 

    Location: Pottstown Regional Public Library
   7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln  
    Contact: Susan Davis   610-970-6551   sdavis@mclinc.org
   

On Good Friday, April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth committed what is one of the most infamous crimes in American history, when he shot President Abraham Lincoln at Ford's Teatre in Washington D.C.  What were the circumstances that led up to this event?  Why was Booth determined to kill Lincoln?  How was this man able to get within a few feet of an American president without being detected?  Booth escaped from Washington that night and, despite a massive man hunt, was on the loose for 12 days.  It wasn't until April 26 that U.S, cavalrymen found him in a tobacco barn just north of Fredericksburg, Virginia.

As we all know Booth did not act alone.  In the days that followed his crime, the federal government brought to trial eight people who were part of the conspiracy.  On July 7, 1865, four of them were executed in the yard of the Old Capitol Prison in Washington D.C.  Major General Winfield S. Hancock and Major General John F. Hartranft, both from Norristown, played key roles in their execution.

This series will meet Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. on the following dates: April 6, 13, 20 and 27.  The registration fee is $60.00.

“Do you want to become a confident public speaker and strong leader? If so, Toastmasters is the place for you. You’ll find a supportive learn-by-doing environment that allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace.”

“Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During their journey, they learn to tell their stories. They listen and answer. They plan and lead. They give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, they find their path to leadership. By regularly giving speeches, giving and receiving feedback in a supportive atmosphere, and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere, leaders emerge from the Toastmasters program.”

Newcomers welcome: The local Toastmasters Club now meets at Pottstown Regional Public Library the first and third Thursday evenings of the month.
