Around the World with Jerrie Mock/Dinner with a Slice of HistoryAround the World with Jerrie Mock/Dinner with a Slice of History

May 8 – Dinner with a Slice of History – Around the World with Jerrie Mock Presented by Wendy Hollinger 6:30 pm. Ohio native Jerrie Mock (1925-2014) was the first woman to fly solo around the world. She made the flight in 1964 in an 11 year old Cessna 180 which is now hanging in the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Center. Jerrie was a 38 year old housewife with only a Private Pilot's license, and less than 700 flying hours. She flew into countries where, even today, women are not allowed to drive. She landed at a secret military base, dealt with severe icing and flew through sandstorms. But she completed over 23, 200 miles in 29 days, 11 hours, and 59 minutes, and was awarded an FAA medal by President Lyndon Johnson. Jerrie’s book, Three-Eight Charlie, has been out of print for many years. Wendy Hollinger and Dale Ratcliff volunteered to publish a new edition for the 50th anniversary of her flight, and met with Jerrie and reviewed her memorabilia. They spent hours interviewing her and photographing her materials, and became passionate about sharing her story. Please join us for this incredible story. Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm with the presentation to follow. Tickets are $15 non-members, $13 members. Please RSVP soon- seats are limited!
