An afternoon with local mapmaker Tom Boucher

Saturday, December 8, 2pm

See your city and your neighborhood a little differently!

Join us for an an afternoon with local mapmaker Tom Boucher!

Tom Boucher has recorded for you all the interesting, quirky, alarming, and just plain weird features that he can cram onto his maps. Tom, a Wildwood resident, has cataloged wind chimes, a few iffy heraldic lions, where friendly cats live, graffiti in the concrete, kooky garden ornaments, inaccurate sundials and much more of the minutiae that show how funny, inventive and weird we Olympians are. Join him for an afternoon slide show of a small fraction of Olympia's oddities.
