North Central Michigan College’s Luncheon Lecture on Friday, May 3, will feature a local woman who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. The program will be held in the Library Conference Center on the Petoskey campus. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.

Karen Marietti, director of the Camp Daggett Adventure Center, has spent most of her adult life working and living experientially.  Mt. Kilimanjaro was always on her list of places to go and, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she decided it was time to make the climb.  In 2017, she and three other women climbed the 19,340 feet to the summit.  She will tell us about her adventure, and show us her amazing photographs.

Reservations are required.  Call 231-348-6600 or email to reserve your place at the table.  Cost is $12 (cash or check only – at door) and includes lunch.
