Thursday, January 17, 2019 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Have you ever wanted to stand on top of Kilimanjaro? Or explore the wildlands of Africa? Join Pam as she guides an AMC Adventure Travel group on two ascents of the world's largest freestanding mountain. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kilimanjaro's snow-capped peak rises majestically from the rolling savanna plain up through five microclimates with diverse ecosystems: rainforest, heather, moorland, desert, and arctic. With amazing views, Dr. Seuss-like vegetation, and remnants of massive glaciers, there is nothing like standing on the top of the Roof of Africa.

100th Year Anniversary of Boston's Molasses Flood

Sunday, January 13, 2019 12:00 AM

On January 15, 1919, in the North End neighborhood of Boston, a large molasses storage tank burst and a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 mph, killing 21 and injuring 150. "Molasses, waist deep, covered the street and swirled and bubbled about the wreckage ... Here and there struggled a form?-?whether it was animal or human being was impossible to tell. Only an upheaval, a thrashing about in the sticky mass, showed where any life was ... Horses died like so many flies on sticky fly-paper. The more they struggled, the deeper in the mess they were ensnared.
