Meet Iditarod Racer Laura Daugereau

San Juan Island Library
Saturday, June 7th at 7:00pm

Laura Daugereau Mushing the Iditarod

Laura Daugereau, Washington's first woman to compete in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, is coming to San Juan Island for a presentation about her rookie run this year. She will be speaking and showing slides at the San Juan Island Library on Saturday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m.

This amazing race stretches from Anchorage, through central Alaska, along the western Bering Sea Coast, and finishes 1049 miles later under the great burled arch in downtown Nome. It is wrought with awesome beauty and grave dangers, and it forever changes those few who have finished it.

The presentation at the library is a rare opportunity to meet a seasoned musher, and see first hand her love for her dogs and their love for her. The slide show will feature education about dog care, equipment used, the sport of mushing, and the historic 1,049 mile Iditarod Trail.

Please come meet Washington's Iditarod representative from Port Gamble, and congratulate her on this amazing accomplishment. Don't miss the chance to be inspired!

This fascinating presentation on "The Last Great Race" is co-sponsored by Kim and Mike Bertrand and Friends of the Library and is free and open to adults and families.
