Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for dinner and a fascinating lecture. The dinner will consist of fresh Hancock Lobster Stew, bread, salads, deserts and coffee. A cash bar will be open to purchase beer and wine.
Then join Richard Bamforth as he shares an authentically human and dramatic view of maritime life in the 20th century through his father's writing. Richard and his brother, Charles, recently compiled the Captain’s logs, diaries, letters, and reminiscences of their father, Capt. Charles Nathaniel Bamforth, to create an autobiographical journal of his life. Capt. Bamforth grew up as a poor country boy who went to sea at the outbreak of WWI and spent the next 60 years in both maritime and naval service, including time as Naval Port Director in Portland.
