845 N. Jefferson Ave.
The West Baton Rouge Museum will host Geoffrey Tyler for a Lunchtime Lecture entitled
Prepared for Life, on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at Noon.
While never a Boy Scout, learn how this pilot and poet known as quite possibly the last prisoner of the
Cold War shares how his training at the Citadel and his military experience prepared him for life when
he had to make an emergency landing in Angola located in south-central Africa and survived over 22
months in communist POW camps.
This program is being offered in conjunction with the Prepared for Life: Scouting in West Baton Rouge
exhibit which tells the stories of the boys who learned valuable life skills and made lasting friendships in
the Boy Scout troops of West Baton Rouge. The exhibit will also explore the contributions of local Girl
Scouts and the programs that they participated in.
This event is FREE, open to the public, and suitable for adults and students ages 12 and up. Participants
are welcome to bring a bag lunch. West Baton Rouge Museum is located at 845 North Jefferson Avenue
in Port Allen. For more information, please call the museum at 225-336-2422 extension 200 or visit
