Lunch N Learn – March 2023

This March, our lunch and learn programs will look at local history with author Robert Mrazek and tour Israel with Iris Lupu

On Wednesday, March 8, we welcome former congressman and author Robert Mrazek. He will focus the discussion on his book about war hero Florence Finch. When she died at the age of 101, few of her Ithaca, NY neighbors knew that this unassuming Filipina native was a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, whose courage and sacrifice were unsurpassed in the Pacific War against Japan. Long accustomed to keeping her secrets close in service of the Allies, she waited fifty years to reveal the story of those dramatic and harrowing days to her own children.

On Wednesday, March 22, Iris Lupu will take us on a tour of her native Israel. Learn about food, culture and traditions that she still cherishes today in this travelogue of this amazing part of the world.

Light lunch will be served at both of these events.  Register here for one or both of these free programs. Please note that registration is required as space is limited.
