On Friday, July 22, Mark Lardas will speak about the leadership of George Washington from the perspective of military history. The program will begin at 11 a.m. in the library's meeting room.
George Washington's military career began during the French and Indian War when he was in his early 20s. While his actions in that conflict were not entirely successful, he learned a lot from this experience. Washington had no formal military training and still was able to lead the Continental Army to victory. What kind of commander was George Washington? What were his strengths and weaknesses and how did his decisions affect the Revolution?
Lardas is the author of 17 books on maritime, military and naval history. Before working as a technical writer, he worked as a software engineer and a space navigator for the Space Shuttle program.
This presentation is the latest installment in the library's Featured Friday series. These monthly programs offer a variety of lectures, movies and special programs of cultural, historical and local interest.
Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Deer Park Public Library. No registration is required and all are welcome to attend. There is no admission fee. The library is located at 3009 Center St.

Each year our team looks forward to participating in the Beep Baseball World Series, held this year in Ames, Iowa the last week in July. The world series involves our five teams from Texas along with teams from all-over America and Taiwan. Because of the high cost of beepball equipment, uniforms, travel, hotel expenses and the rental of a 15-passenger van during the week of competition, our team has to seek out financial support and sponsors. Our athletes are extremely anxious to compete again this year. Your charitable contribution to the Bayou City Heat will greatly help this dream become a reality.
We will take every opportunity to publicly acknowledge and thank you for your support. I will also be glad to personally meet with anyone to explain beep baseball and answer any questions. Even though we work hard to hold annual fundraisers, without additional financial contributions like yours, our team would not be able to participate in the 2016 Beep Baseball World Series. Thank you in advance for your generosity to encourage local area visually impaired athletes.
