Don Wilding will be at the library to discuss some of the great shipwrecks and rescues on the Outer Beach of Cape Cod, ranging from the earliest days of the U.S. Lifesaving Service (1872) to the early years of the U.S. Coast Guard in the first half of the 20th century. Join Don for a look at the wrecks of the Castagna, the Francis, the Montclair, the Jason, the Portland, and more.
