Our March meeting was a grand success! Check out these photos from the Fayetteville Observer.

Our featured speaker was Marc Jensen, director of Maritime Affairs for the Friends of L’Hermione-LaFayette in America. L’Hermione is an historically accurate reproduction of the ship that Lafayette sailed to America in 1780, and the ship is gearing up to set sail from Rochefort, France, to the United States in 2015! Learn more in this inspiring video.
