The official 2015 Florida Chautauqua Assembly is a 4-day educational program for families themed "From the River to the Rocket: A Journey into the World of Transportation." This year's historic event is comprised of a featured keynote presentation by Apollo 13 Astronaut Fred Haise, educational breakout sessions, performance teas, evening dinner performances and exhibits relating to an annual theme. Those who wish to "opt out" of their Saturday sessions can board a motor coach for an exciting excursion to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola for a behind-the-scene tour, lunch and Imax Theater presentation. Virtually all Assembly sessions and events will relate to the history of transportation. Passports (money saving book of tickets) are $150 each and include breakfasts, lunches, performance teas, parlour readings, dinners and all sessions/events. For those who wish to take a day off from traditional sessions, an excursion to the National Navy Aviation Museum in Pensacola is now being planned by event organizers. Excursion is included in Passport package for those wishing to purchase the "Excursion Passport." To receive a hard-copy registration packet in your mailbox for future Assemblies, please join our mailing list if you have not done so during the past 5 years.
