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. Dr. Scott Horowitz will inspire us with Reach for the Stars. Dr. Horowitz encourages audiences to Reach for the Stars in life and their endeavors and will take us on a journey into the future with his vision for the future of space exploration.
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.
Honoring Our Marin Veterans Oral History Project will once again have a present of our local veteran histories.
