FASO Historical Happy Hour

Join FASO for an unforgettable evening of history, historical gossip, and fun. Special guests Anna Greenberg and Jim Cheevers and moderators Carol Richards, Chris Nelson & Eric Smith will chat about Annapolis history, secrets of the past, and how Annapolis has grown and changed over the decades. Our guests have seen it all, from the start of the ASO, the change of Annapolis from a sleepy harbor town to a major tourist destination and USNA town, through every politician, political crisis and local event. Learn and laugh at our Historical Happy Hour.
