Are there polar bears at the South Pole? What about penguins? Does it ever get dark in the summer? What do you know about the coldest and driest continent in the world? The Mont Vernon Historical Society and the Friends of the Daland Memorial Library are delighted to be sponsoring Curtis Moore’s program “Summer at the South Pole: How COOL is that!!” during Mont Vernon’s Spring Gala Day, Saturday, May 14th. The program will be held in the meeting room at the Town Hall (it is handicapped accessible) at 2 p.m. Curtis will present a slide show and talk about his experiences while living and working for five austral summers assisting in research projects at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station on Antarctica. He got back from his last trip on “The Ice” this spring.
Curtis grew up in Massachusetts, then went west to start college at South Dakota State University before transferring and completing his degree in outdoor leadership at Northern Arizona University. His love of the outdoors led to extensive experience in building, repairing and maintaining trails while working with and supervising high school students for the nationwide organization Students Conservation Corps. He has also worked for the Randolph (NH) Vermont Club Trail Crew as crew member and trail supervisor.
Curtis has competed in a number of marathons including the Boston Marathon. He has also run in marathons in New Zealand and Greece. He’s run in many other races across the US including a race up Mount Washington-a one hill race, so to speak! On a more local scale, he won the Mont Vernon Road Race on Gala Day last year and plans to compete again this year. He is currently on a 500 mile pilgrimage hike in Spain called “el Camino de Santiago.” Curtis is the grandson of the late Russell Stacy and Peg Stacy formerly of Mont Vernon. Peg now lives in Massachusetts. The program is free and open to all. There will be a chance to ask questions.
