We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. This was seminal event in our country’s — and the world’s — peaceful historic achievements. This herculean effort has affected our lives in a myriad of profound ways. As we look back on this milestone moment, let’s consider the types of challenges we can surmount when we prioritize our focus toward a noble goal.
We hope you’ll find the following list of Great Gables Events informative, entertaining and enlightening. Take a few minutes to look through the calendar listings to find some truly delightful and worthwhile events.
