 Here's Mary Lou, our site host. The site hosts along the way are the people who make our job so easy. They make all the arangements for rooms, meals, speakers, etc. and make us feel comfortable. And next to her is Dan, a local author, who gave us a great of the buildings of Saint Charles, the first town west of the Mississippi, and the first state capital. ok

This Lewis and Clark Boathouse and Nature Center has great displays and is home to the three replica boats of the Discovery Expedition of Saint Charles.

Bill gave us a talk on the role of St. Charles in the expedition. and Bob showed us the keelboat.

A great statue in Riverfront Park. And dinner lineup at St. Charles Community College, before our evening lecture.

In the evening, we had a very enlightening lecture from Debbie Crank Lewis, "Setting the Stage."  On the right she is pictured with her son, Christian Meriwether. I'm not sure why he pointing a finger at her, but it seems they are having fun.
