Mark your calendar for 9-10 a.m. Wed., Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day, for Gerald Langham’s presentation, “What a Difficult and Lonely Life–the Story of a 19th Century River Captain, Andrew Carney Smyth.”  The event will be held in the Salvation Army Meeting Room, at the corner of MLK and Strickland, for the weekly Golden K Kiwanis meeting.

Langham, a retired Dupont electrical engineer since 2005, says he almost keeps busier in retirement than in employment, to which many of us can attest.

He is a history buff who participates in Civil War re-enactments, Boy Scout Trail Walks, and historical events.

He reads a lot, with one of his favorite books being “Texas Riverman,” by William Seale.

The public is invited to attend this informal Golden K meeting and have a cup of coffee with us.  See you at 9 a.m. on Valentine’s Day at the Salvation Army Building.  Call or text 409.313.7575 for more details.
