CREATIVE DISTRICT News:
Los Alamos Living Treasure Bill Hudson is the featured speaker at History On Tap at 5:30 p.m., Thursday at UnQuarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos.
At History On Tap, Hudson will share his experiences as a Marine on Iwo Jima, and not just the story of the battle. He will tell stories not found in history books. Bill just celebrated his 90th birthday and is a longtime Los Alamos resident.
He has taught and coached here and in Puerto Rico, has competed in the Senior Olympics at the national level, and at age 65 was part of the team that swam the English Channel. He was recognized as a Los Alamos Living Treasure in 2005.
Sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by the Los Alamos Historical Society, this series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion.
On Tap is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. On Tap happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC.
