Kathy Kleiman, author of Proving Ground: The Untold Story of the Six Women Who Programmed the World’s First Modern Computer, will tell how she tracked down these women and captured their stories starting at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the free Discovery Center Community Forum at Havre de Grace Middle/High School, 445 Lewis Lane, Havre de Grace, MD 21078.
On October 20, 2017, Harford County was the site of the “Party of the Century” – the Aberdeen Proving Ground Centennial Gala, the culminating event of APG’s 100th Anniversary celebration in 2017. More than 800 guests enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime evening of music, dancing, fine wines, entertainment, in a beautiful Cabaret setting. Fireworks! Performances!
The Centennial Cabaret was followed by Harford County’s first After Party at the Speakeasy, where guests kicked off their shoes and rounded out the night with jazz, stimulating conversation, and a nightcap or two.
Net proceeds from the APG Centennial Cabaret benefited Harford County’s new APG Discovery Center, now in the planning phases to be located in the city of Aberdeen. More information at DiscoveryCenterMd.org.
