The Crawford W. Long Museum will host an evening of “Supper and Substance” featuring D.G. Rodgers of Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday, April 12, from 7-10 p.m. at the Jefferson Civic Center.
Rodgers will be sharing his personal account of a climb to the top of Mt. Everest and other continental high points around the world, which will include photos.
Participants will have a chance to try on a climber’s backpack and see all the equipment required to take on a mountain climbing challenge.
Lawyer by day and adventurist any other time, D.G. Rodgers, who recently summited Everest in 2013, has also traveled to Africa, Antarctica, Europe, South America and across North America to climb the highest mountains on those continents and to find adventure. Cost includes a light supper with beer and wine.
In addition to Rodgers’ stories, the evening will feature Mark Starnes, husband of museum manager Vicki Starnes, and Jeremy York, performing a rendition of “Always Trust Your Cape.”
The cost for museum members is $15; non-members, $20.
Space is limited. To reserve a space, call 706-367-5307.
