You are invited!  The Library is sponsoring a program at the Sunflower Gardens Community Room on Sunday April 23 at 2 pm for a presentation by Ulysses Lee “Rip” Gooch (born September 13, 1923).  Mr. Gooch is a former pilot, aviation entrepreneur, and Kansas politician. Gooch was a member of the Kansas Commission on Civil Rights, a member of the Wichita City Council, and a Kansas state senator until retiring in January 2004 as the state’s oldest serving senator, at 80.
