Florida Institute of Technology’s Lifelong Scholar Society has announced its summer lecture series, which features six presentations from university faculty and staff on a variety of topics from May through August.

The hour-long lectures run from 6-7 p.m. on Thursday evenings and conclude with a half-hour of informal conversation with the guest speaker. Coffee and pies from Joan’s Perfect Pies in Eau Gallie will be served.

Firstly, you may be wondering what in the world is the Melbourne Mouser? Well, it’s part biking competition and part tour of our fabulous Melbourne. On the day of the event our cyclists will be given the top secret list of locations, it is then their duty to visit each location on the list (in any order they see fit) and get a stamp at each location to prove they were there. Then return to the shop for an after party bug-out and celebration.
