DuBois Area Historical Society Luncheon Nov. 3

October 24, 2007 at 2:34 PM

            Kara Martino of DuBois will be the guest speaker at the DuBois Area Historical Society 2007 luncheon at noon on Nov. 3 at the Brady Township Community Building in Luthersburg.

            Martino replaces the originally scheduled speaker Dorothy Hook, who had to cancel her presentation. Martino’s topic is “A Cadet’s Life at the U.S. Air Force Academy.”

            A DuBois Area High School graduate, Martino was one of the first women to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo. She plans to talk about her experience and the accomplishments of the cadets from the Academy.

            “We apologize to those who have made early reservations to hear Dorothy Hook speak,” said Tom Schott, second vice president of the Society. “There was an unexpected problem that prevents her from speaking at this time. We will try to reschedule her at a later date.”

            The luncheon menu includes soup, sandwich, pasta salad, cake, and beverage. The cost is $7.50 per adult, $4 for children under 12. Reservations may be made by calling 814-371-9006 or 814-371-4627 before Nov. 1st.
