The Unsinkable Molly Brown Program
Come and hear the true story of the adventurous and daring “Unsinkable Molly Brown” at The Summit of Uptown, 10 N. Summit (at Touhy), Park Ridge, on Thursday, April 20, at 1:30 p.m. Lynn Rymarz, author and storyteller will introduce us to the heroine of the Titanic commemorating the 100th anniversary of the April 15, 1912 disaster. There is no charge for this program.
After her rescue, Margaret Brown—her real name—was interviewed and asked how she survived the disaster. According to legend she responded “Typical Brown luck. We’re unsinkable.” The program will also include historical photographs and newspapers that tell the story of her heroism including her help in the ship’s evacuation, taking an oar herself in the lifeboat and protesting when the crewman in charge of her lifeboat refused at first to go back and save more people.
For further information or reservations—which are required by Monday, April 16—call 847-825-1161, ext. 129. Light refreshments will be served. Those who attend are eligible for the Summit Guest Rewards Program which offers opportunities to earn rewards and prizes such as lunch or brunch for two at Summit, or VISA gift cards.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early or stay late for tours of the newly renovated retirement community. Parking is available in the City’s central parking lot and the Uptown lot across the street. For a list of other entertaining events at Summit, visit www.summitofuptown.com.
