There's a few moments in our history where everyone remembers where they were and what they were doing and who they were with. July 20, 1969 is one of those. Our webmaster remembers he was a counselor at a summer camp and when they had all the kids to bed and sleeping, they left the cook in charge and went into the neighboring town to gather around a black and white television in a beer tavern. Known to close like clockwork each evening, on this night the barkeep shut off the "open" sign and everyone stayed late into the morning hours experiencing the first man on the moon! Where were you on that infamous evening?
