I just wanted to make sure that cS members in VA, KY, TN, and NC knew about the events featuring Harrison Schmitt in the very southwest corner of Virginia.

From Tuesday-Thursday, he'll be giving a lecture during a lunch, judging a rocket-building contest, giving an evening lecture for only $12, and playing a round of golf with people who make a rather sizable donation to the Barter Theatre.

Heaven knows if I could possibly take a couple of days off school this close to the end of the year, I would be making the five-hour drive across Virginia. Just seeing the Barter Theatre alone would be worth it- I took a grad class last year on how to teach about the Great Depression, and my final report on its effects in Virginia included a mention of this theater, which true to its name accepted produce from farmers in exchange for tickets during that time (and still today once a year). The unofficial motto was "Ham for Hamlet."

I hope someone can make it!
