Join us on the third Thursday of the month July through December for a lunch and learn opportunity! We’ll be exploring topics related to Cantigny Park and local history. Bring a sack lunch from home and have a snack while you learn!

Registration is required due to limited space.

Speaker for this month: The sights and sounds of a running tank or truck can bring history to life in ways that static displays and uniforms behind glass never could and the First Division Museum is no stranger to unique ways of telling a story. Enjoy a September Lunch and Learn talking about the work, challenges and research that goes into running programs and interpreting large objects and operating military vehicles. Attendees will hear from the First Division Museum’s own Historic Vehicle Program Coordinator, Ian Richardson who has (in his opinion) one of the most fun and unique jobs in the park.
