We attended the presentation by Muffet Brown, a great granddaughter of Margaret Brown (aka the Unsinkable Molly Brown), on the role that Mrs. Brown played in the saving and helping of passengers on the Titanic, a ship sunk in the Atlantic Ocean on 1912. This ship was described by its owners as unsinkable yet it went down when it struck an iceberg. Mrs. Margaret Brown did escape with her life on a lifeboat containing several passengers from the sinking Titanic ship. Her strong encouragement and determination was important in all those in the lifeboat she was in not losing hope of be picked up by another ship. She also helped several of the crew from the Titanic who survived the sinking return to their homes in England.
The meeting room was very comfortable and all were comfortable as Ms. Brown made her talk. We were provided with water for refreshment, and the hotel's historian talked about Mrs. Margaret Brown staying at the Brown Palace when in Denver due to her own home being unavailable due to it being rented out when she was traveling (and she traveled a great deal).
We did enjoy a meal at the Ship Tavern where the food was excellent and the service was friendly and done with professional care and with our needs and desires always foremost.
Thank you for an excellent experience and a charming afternoon.
