The next NELL program is “Shipwrecks on the Great Lakes ” with Dick Roue. This program will be held on Wednesday, October 20 at 9:30 am at the McIntosh Community Center in McIntosh. Light refreshments are served at 9am.

In 1975, The Edmund Fitzgerald went to the bottom of Lake Superior without so much as a single SOS call.
Using investigative techniques learned in a quarter century of law enforcement, Dick Roue has weighed every point against provable or verifiable facts. He doesn’t propose to have all the answers to all the questions, but he does provide some very interesting and thought-provoking ideas regarding what happened on that fateful night. NELL Coordinator Tamara Edevold says this program is of interest to people in this area that had family members who worked on the boats on the Great Lakes.

While the Edmund Fitzgerald tragedy might be the most well known ship wreck, Dick will also explore several other shipwrecks that have occurred on the Great Lakes.

Join Dick Roue for the next Northern Exposure to Lifelong Learning program, “Shipwrecks on the Great Lakes” at 9:30 am on Wednesday, October 20th at the McIntosh Community Center. NELL programs are free and open to all ages. Masks and social distancing will be encouraged.
