Kentucky Rough Rider Meeting @ DCPS Learning Center | Owensboro | Kentucky | United States

Lora Wimsatt and Steve & Cindy Goodrid will share stories of their “Travels with TR” in a lighthearted review of visits to TR’s Elkhorn Ranch; Theodore Roosevelt National Park; attendance at national TR Association meetings in Buffalo and New York City, including meetings with Ken Burns and Edmund Morris; mornings on horseback in the Dakota Badlands; and how a hurricane, a dumpster and a mirror inspired the launch of the Kentucky Rough Riders. The program will also include a conversation about how travel enriches our lives – a belief TR most certainly would have shared.  A highlight of the program will be a special presentation of “Theodore Roosevelt: How I Love Sagamore Hill.” This photographic collection by photographer/artist Xiomaro has been exhibited at Harvard University and other national venues, and has been made available for one night only to the Kentucky Rough Riders by special permission of the photographer. This is an opportunity to see TR’s home in Oyster Bay in magnificent detail – you won’t want to miss this exclusive showing!
