Apollo 11 event to be held at Beloit Public Library


BELOIT - To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, the Beloit Public Library, 605 Eclipse Blvd., will host actor Terry Lynch, as astronaut Neil Armstrong, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, during a special Tween Time program for kids ages 8-13.

The free program, titled "Apollo 11, One Giant Leap: A Series of Firsts," will recount the lead-up to the landing, as well as the other series of "firsts" associated with that historic mission including the first color transmission from Earth and the first time a customs report was filled out from another planet.

Lynch specializes in historical portrayals to bring history to life for audiences young and old. His one-man interactive presentations give audiences a new, first-person perspective of the people and events that make up our history and culture.
