Special guest Lloyd Crenna will present photographs and answer questions about the fascinating “move” of the Concord Masonic Temple. Guest Speaker John Keibel will follow with an illustrated presentation of his book Behind the Barbed Wire: History of Naval Weapons Station Concord. Have you ever wondered what went on behind the barbed wire fence? This story is an intriguing one: an intricate web of life and loss, national defense and protest, scientific advance and obsolescence.
