Meet Rochelle Pennington, the author of two books detailing one of the most well known shipwrecks on the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan’s Christmas Tree Ship. The ship was fully loaded with Christmas trees to deliver to Chicago when it was wrecked on November 23, 1912. Please join us for Rochelle’s presentation which will include many century old photographs of the captain and ship, artifacts from the ship and underwater photos of the shipwreck.
