Join us for the last edition of our 2021 half-season of the Enlightening Bites Lecture Series.
This month we welcome Will Watt, a local WWII history-enthusiast. Watt will be delving into the history of Thomasville’s old Army Airfield.
‘The Japanese had recently bombed Pearl Harbor dragging the U.S. into World War II. America had to ramp up for war quickly. This war would be different from World War I as a major focus would be using airplanes to take the war to the enemy. Training bases sprung up all over the country to get pilots ready and Thomasville was no exception.’
We encourage you to bring a lunch and enjoy the talk! Seating will be limited to respect the desires of physical distancing. Seating offered upon arrival.
