Lunch & Learn: Looking Back to 1974

February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

1974 Grocery Ad

Enjoy a delicious lunch and a talk that will take us back 50 years to 1974! The Looking Back to 1974 talk will look at what life was like in the Monadnock Region and the ways world events impacted life here at home (remember the energy crisis or the resignation of Richard Nixon?) From the hairstyles to the low grocery prices, this talk will have you chuckling and yearning for the good ‘old days.’

Lunch & Learn programs begin with a light luncheon of wrap sandwiches, salad, and chips followed by a sweet treat for dessert. After lunch, we present a lively illustrated talk. Seating is limited and all tickets must be purchased in advance. Lunch & Learn programs often sell out, so we encourage you to get your tickets early.

In the event of inclement weather, we will reschedule this program and honor all tickets for the new date.

Tickets: $18 ($15 for Monadnock Center members)

If you have special dietary needs, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. You can reach us at (603) 924-3235.
