May 22, 2014

Richard R. Pieper, Sr., Board Chair of PPC Partners, Inc. (which includes Milwaukee’s PIEPERPOWER), and several of his friends who accompanied him on his sailboat as he circumnavigated the world will share their adventures on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 5 p.m. in the American Geographical Society Library, located on the third floor east wing of the UWM Golda Meir Library, 2311 E. Hartford Ave.

Pieper, an entrepreneur, community leader and philanthropist, is the recipient of the 2013 American Patriot of Character Award, given by the Character Education Partnership, a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition of organizations and individuals based in Washington, DC.

He recently donated his collection of nautical charts and books related to his voyage to the American Geographical Society Library.

Joining him at the talk will be fellow sailors Sandy & Ken Dziubek, Tom Dalum, Fred Horwitz, Dan Fetterley, and Rick Pieper.

The free event, “Get Aboard the Agape: Richard R. Pieper, Sr. & Friends Share Stories of Their Voyage Around the Globe,” is co-sponsored by the UWM Libraries and the Friends of the UWM Golda Meir Library.

Public parking is available in the UWM Union parking garage, 2200 E. Kenwood Ave.
