CreativeMornings/PKX: Graham Alvord

Aug 18, 2017 @ 8:30 am  —  Aug 18, 2017 @ 10:00am

The Genius of 100 Years

What does it mean to be 100 today?

A special children’s event celebrating the life and lessons of 100 year Seacoast citizen, Graham Alvord. We will be showing two 10 minute films about the life of Graham Alvord and then a fun Q&A. What do YOU want to ask someone who was born in 1916?!

Mr. Alvord was born over a century ago and has lived most of his life in Kittery Point, Maine. He served during World War II on a munitions ship as a Naval Officer, and his ship was the first one to land on the beach in Normandy on D-Day. He was received by the Queen of England and many other heads of state at the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day. He also received the Legion of Honor from the French Government—it’s highest medal. Graham was recently honored as the oldest living graduate of Harvard University.

Graham’s life was spent mostly quietly and lovingly with his family, but in between there were quite a few momentous occasions that we will be sharing and exploring.
