Description

Tommy Talk 2019: A Visit with Amelia
Two performances on Saturday, September 21
2 PM for kids ages 7 and up, 7 PM for adults

To commemorate the Tommy plane's centennial flight on September 29, 2018, the Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation, in partnership with The History Center, will hold an event each autumn highlighting aviation history through a lecture or performance.

"A Visit with Amelia" features local Geneva actor Eleanor Stearns as famed aviator Amelia Earhart. She visited Ithaca in December 1932 after becoming the first woman pilot to complete a solo transatlantic flight in May 1932.

A half-hour interactive show especially for children will be held at 2:00 PM, followed by photo-ops with Amelia and the Tommy plane, a paper airplane contest, and snacks generously donated by Littletree Orchards.

A slightly longer show geared mainly towards adults will be held at 7:00 PM, with wine generously donated by Ports of New York and hors d'oeuvres.

The performances will be held in the Ithaca College Gallery/CAP ArtSpace on the first floor of the Tompkins Center for History & Culture, 1st Floor, 110 North Tioga Street, Ithaca, NY 14850.
