About the Event
The Lincoln Group returns to in-person dinner meetings! Join us as Maggiano’s Little Italy for a fantastic expanded menu, an amazing presentation, and tons and tons of free stuff (more details below). Happy hour and dinner starts at 6 p.m. Zoom link opens at 6:45 for Business meeting, presentation will start about 7 p.m.
Our speaker will be David Wiegers, a talented photographer who has traveled the world finding many variations and stages of Lincoln’s life depicted in statues in the most unexpected places. Artists have presented Lincoln as a book-loving child, a backwoods youth handy with an axe, a Midwest lawyer, a senate candidate, a war president, and the great orator of Gettysburg. In addition to photos, Dave will talk about the book and his new Lincoln Sculpture’s Project Google map, which will become a valuable resource for Lincoln travelers.
To welcome everyone back to our in-person dinner events, we’ll be giving away some great gifts to every in-person attendee. There will also be other opportunities to win even more surprises. Check out the accompanying news post for more details.
