Women Of DVAA Movie Matinee

Club Meeting (Public)
is not Required
Here's something you might not have known: After rigorous testing in 1961, elite highly-qualified female pilots were asked to step aside when only men were declared eligible for the Mercury program to put the first US astronaut into space. The new Netflix documentary Mercury 13 is the story of these women. You are invited to a movie matinee at my house on Saturday, June 30th, 3-6pm, for nibbles, movie-watching, and maybe a little wine if you are so inclined. We'll start the movie at 3:30.
Here's a link to the Netflix trailer (80 minute documentary): https://www.netflix.com/title/80174436

110 Mustang Way, Eagleville, PA 19403 (Note: some GPS systems list this address as Norristown; this works fine too). Enter at the North Wales Road entrance. The gate should be open, but if it's not enter the code 0314 and hit CALL at the electronic box, and I will open the gate. Do not try to enter at the Township Line entrance as this is for residents only. Park either in my driveway, or in the spaces at the bottom of the hill in the cul-de-sac. Street parking is not permitted.
All DVAA-connected women and girls are welcome!
