2019 Spring Luncheon “The Day the World Came to Town”
Art Spaces’ annual spring luncheon, “The Day the World Came to Town” was held Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 12:00 Noon at the Country Club of Terre Haute. When U.S.A airspace was shut down after the tragic events of September 11, 2001, residents of Gander, Newfoundland (population approximately 10,000) opened their hearts and homes to 6,700 stranded strangers. Join Art Spaces for an elegant spring luncheon featuring Mark Bennett’s commentary on journalist Jim Defede’s book The Day the World Came to Town, a story of generosity, goodwill and extraordinary kindness. Mark Bennett writes columns, features and editorials for the Tribune-Star and is the author of the book 500 Miles of Wabash. Thank you to our Event Sponsor Terre Haute Savings Bank.
