1:30 pm to 5:30 pm: Discover Portland! Discover Maine!
INANE 2014 will open with 90 minute narrated trolley tours for all attendees. The tour will provide a history of Portland and include a visit to Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth. The lighthouse was commissioned by President George Washington in 1790 and is one of the most photographed sites in the US. It has recently been commemorated on a stamp!
Each trolley accommodates 32 people and 6 trolley trips have been reserved for the afternoon, to ensure that all INANE attendees will have a seat. Trolleys will be departing on their tours at intervals throughout the afternoon (1:30; 1:45; 2:15; 3:30; 3:45; 4:00 pm). Seats are not reserved—board the trolley at the front of the hotel. We encourage getting on an early trolley if possible to accommodate everyone throughout the afternoon.
3:30 pm to 5 pm: Meeting of the Planning Committee for INANE 2015. Longfellow Room.
5 pm to 8 pm: Discover Portland! Discover Maine! Opening Gala and Speaker
