Join us for an in-depth presentation on how the USS Lexington kept the lights on in Tacoma in 1929, after a severe drought left little water behind Tacoma City Light’s two power dams. This fascinating story of good intentions, bureaucracy, city rivalry, politics and improvisational problem solving explores the relationship that developed between the Lady Lex and Tacoma and lasted all the way through World War II.
