Inspirational speakers and videos

On Wednesday the entire community was treated to a talk by Paul Deegan, travel author and adventurer. He spoke of three trips that tested his, and others, limits and abilities. He spoke cogently of understanding one’s own desires and abilities, planning properly, and reaching our dreams in spite of any handicaps life may have handed us.
Hopefully these two new videos, Intrepid Descent and Blood, Sweat & Gears, will give us further inspiration to follow Mr. Deegan’s example.

It was a privilege to speak at Governor's; thank you for inviting me. Anyone interested in learning more about the achievements of Glenn Shaw, who kayaked off the coast of Antarctica, can watch the video of the expedition at
