In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first moon walk on July 20, 1969, actor Terry Lynch will be portraying astronaut Neil Armstrong. He will recount the lead up to the first moon landing as well as the other “series of firsts” associated with that historic mission, such as the first color transmission from Earth and the first time a customs report was filled out from another planet! Brought to you in partnership with River Forest Township.
