BBCA invites you to honor the service and sacrifice of our Marin veterans and help ensure the future of Marin's Air Force JROTC program. Join us for an all-American evening of music, nostalgia, informal dinner and silent auction. See the moon landing sites up close with both eyes through an astronomy telescope set up outside during the venue.
Special Guest Presentation
Today we cannot imagine walking around without a hand-held GPS. We take for granted such things as scratch-resistant lenses, invisible braces for our teens, water filters, memory foam and cordless tools. But these are among the thousands of inventions attributable to the efforts of NASA scientists and the needs and experiments of the Space Program.
Because of their accomplishments, we can see astounding pictures of space, but only a very few people have actually experienced the wonder of being there first-hand. Apollo 12 Command Module Pilot, Richard "Dick" Gordon, will delight us with Shooting for the Moon: A Personal Journey. Dick is one of only 24 humans to traverse from Earth to the Moon. A member of the Astronaut Hall of Fame, Dick is among an elite group of astronauts who, through ground-breaking work and daring feats, made space flight no longer science fiction. Our invited guest, Col. Yvonne Cagle, M.D., is Marin’s own astronaut and graduate of this JROTC program, who has done important work in preserving historic NASA space legacy data while galvanizing NASA’s lead in global mapping, sustainable energies, green initiatives, and disaster preparedness. The Space Station Museum houses one of the largest private collections of U.S., Russian and Soviet space exploration artifacts and brings a traveling display to this event. Browse the exciting history of space exploration and learn about this gem of a museum right here in Marin.
