ESU Boston Presents Three Unique and Wonderfully Informative Social Events

Please note on your calendar and RSVP to assure your presence

This year's speaker from Great Britain honoring the founder of the English Speaking Union Sir Evelyn Wrench, is Robert Hulse author of "Brunel: The Man Who Changed the World." Brunel was the quintessential promethean engineer whose first project, London's Thames Tunnel, is the birthplace of urban transport. This project altered the very essence of the cities in which we live.

Robert Hulse is Director of London's Brunel Museum, housed in Brunel's original Thames Tunnel engine house, and winner of The Queen's Award in 2010. His talk will take place on Wednesday, April 22 at 6:00 PM at the West End Museum, 150 Staniford Street, Boston.

On Saturday, May 9 beginning at 11:00 AM and continuing throughout the afternoon, the ESU will be commemorating the 70th anniversary of VE Day at a very special, one of a kind World War II Museum in Natick. ESU members will have the privilege of "on your own" tours that will provide a unique and intense experience that preserves and exhibits the reality of WWII.

By observing and interacting with the most comprehensive collection of WWII artifacts on display anywhere in the world, you'll experience the reality faced by those who fought on the battlefront as well as the home front. The causes and events of WWII will be fully understood and made relevant to today's geopolitical events.

This is an excellent opportunity to tour the exhibits with your children and grandchildren in this splendidly organized educational museum where everything is hands on.
