Benton PUD Auditorium, 2721 W 10th Ave. in Kennewick
From 6:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Free to attend - Hosted by the Ice Age Floods Institute - Lake Lewis Chapter

"In the fall of 1902, a Welch farmer happened upon one odd rock perched on a slope above the Willamette River.  It turned out to be a meteorite, and the slow unfolding of its story revealed links to Northwest mining, museum politics, Ice Age floods, human nature, and the deep history of the universe."

Join us as Spokane-based teacher and naturalist Jack Nisbet presents the story of the Willamette Meteorite, perhaps the most exotic erratic of them all. Nisbet is the author of several books that explore the human and natural history of the Northwest, including biographies of mapmaker David Thompson and naturalist David Douglas. Nisbet's most recent book, Ancient Places, is a cycle of stories about people and phenomena that helped to shape the landscape our region.  The Ice Age floods play a key role in several of these essays.

For decades shrouded in secrecy and nourished by fear, we are only now—some seventy-five years on—beginning to understand the full effects of that event and its complex aftermath.

In addition to the conference program, we will conduct a tour to the dedication of the White Bluffs Bank historic site, B Reactor, and Hanford High School. (This tour is optional and open to all conference attendees.)

We will also have several events open to the public, including a reception Wednesday evening and a banquet Friday evening.
As part of the conference, the REACH Museum will host on Saturday the screening of Command and Control by author and filmmaker Eric Schlosser. There will be a social hour from 6-7 p.m. and the movie from 7-9 p.m. Suggested donation of $15 for walk-ins and no charge for conference attendees.

Presentation: Hollywood and the Homefront: Tinsel Town’s Contribution to WWII - March 16

Mid-Columbia Library, 1620 S Union St. in Kennewick
Starts at 7 p.m.
Free to attend

A presentation by John Jensen -
During World War II, the War Department realized the importance of not only keeping up the morale of America’s fighting forces abroad, but the morale of those at home. The result was an unprecedented push by Hollywood to contribute morale-building war dramas, troop entertainment, and training films to the war effort. Special radio programs, documentary films, and live performances told Americans at home that they too could serve in the defense of their country by purchasing war bonds, participating in scrap drives, planting Victory Gardens, and volunteering.

Experience the still-powerful images, radio, and film that emerged from this dramatic time in American history. Audio historian and former broadcaster John Jensen shares rarely known stories and anecdotes from Hollywood’s war effort, and shows examples of wartime propaganda through various media that was used to educate, inform and sway American public opinion.

When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar - with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence.


The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame. Based on the true story.
