Men’s Group Speaker & Luncheon

Published on Mar 10th, 2012 by alison | 0


The FCC Men’s Group is sponsoring a luncheon with Capt. Arthur Lasker Saturday, April 21st at noon, at the First Congregational Church, 300 High Street. 

Capt Lasker, U.S. Army Air Corps, was a P-38 Lightning pilot during the latter part of World War 2.  There are only a handful of P-38s still flying and perhaps even fewer of the pilots who flew them in combat are still around to tell their stories of aerial combat.

The Lockheed P-38 was the primary long range fighter airplane of World War 2 until the deployment of the P-51 Mustang. Captain Lasker will talk about his experiences training in and flying the P-38 and relate some of his more memorable experiences both on the ground and in the air.

This not-to-be missed luncheon is guaranteed to be one that all those in attendance will long remember.

Following Captain Lasker’s talk, the group will have the opportunity to participate in a short work detail at his home to help spruce up his yard for spring.

Please call Les Cory 401-624-3478 or John Tolley 401-254-0356 by April 18, or email the church office – to reserve your seat.
