Bill Coleman receives Captains Award

FCW held its annual meeting Thursday, August 20, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  The virtual meeting lasted about an hour and was free and open to both members and the general public.

Jeffrey Mason, President of FCW, was the host and introduced the keynote speaker Jennifer Francis, PhD, Senior Scientist at the Woodwell Climate Research Center, who by popular demand returned for an updated presentation on the question: How Does the Arctic Meltdown Affect Tropical Storms?  A question period followed.

This was a chance to learn from a world-renowned researcher about the science behind extreme weather patterns in the mid-latitudes where we live.

A brief FCW business meeting preceded Dr. Francis’s talk with standing committee reports and the annual prestigious Captain’s Award was given to the Reverend William C. Coleman, an FCW founding director.
