Pearson Lakes Art Center Speaker Series kicks off May 16 

The Pearson Lakes Art Center Speaker Series will get underway on Thursday evening.

Executive Director Bob Kirschbaum says the Series will kick off with a talk by Templeton Rye Founder, Scott Bush.  "This is the kick-off and we're really excited.  I guess years ago before I came here, Scott Bush of Templeton Rye was the speaker, and I think we filled the place up and we're hoping that's going to be the same this Thursday night.  Scott Bush is going to be here to speak and to introduce and go more in-depth about his new Okoboji Vodka."

He notes that the Speaker Series is free and open to the public. "The Speaker Series is a free event so we encourage everyone to come.  There's going to be sampling of his vodka, then we'll meet in the auditorium.  There will be a video presentation about the history and a little bit more about his company.  This really ties in with the rest of the summer because our theme is Booze, Books and Business."

The doors will open at 7 with the talk at 7:30 Thursday evening.
