The Alaska State Society is convening Saturday, March 16 for brunch and conversation in the upstairs room at Mr. Henry's:
This is event is free and open to all. as seating may be limited. (Your reservation will also help us ensure that we don't run out of food.)
After 30 minutes of brunch and casual conversation, we'll open the Qugruk forum* and hear 10-15 minutes from a guest speaker, followed by questions and answers from the audience.
This is an Alaska-casual event: jeans, Carhartts, fleece and XtraTufs welcomed.
This month's guest will be Larry Persily, head of the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Transportation Projects. With Seward's Day on the horizon, Larry will take up the question: "Is the Alaska natural gas pipeline just another Seward's folly?"
Mr. Henry's is located between the Capitol South and Eastern Market metro stations, on the southeast corner of Seward Square. Bus stops for the 32/34/36, 90/92, and Union-Station-to-Navy-Yard circulator routes are relatively close by.
(*Why Qugruk? The qugruk, or tundra swan -- like many AKSS members -- regularly flies between Alaska and Washington, D.C.)
