Come learn about local history and its connection to state and national events during a series of upcoming sack lunch lectures on Capitol Campus.  

Presented by Steve Jones, who worked for 40 years as an attorney for the Washington State Senate and now volunteers for Visitor Services. This is a lighthearted look at President Harry Truman’s historic vacation to Olympia in June 1945. It’s a story complete with spies, late night poker games, and presidential shenanigans. The event will feature photos from the Truman Archives.

For more information on the lecture series, call Capitol Visitor Services at (360) 902-8880.
