U.S. Space Flight Trailblazer Visiting Bateman’s Bay September 19th

The way we view the Moon Landing is about to change, thanks to an upcoming event in Bateman’s Bay. A very special, once-in-a-lifetime-event, ‘A Conversation with JoAnn Morgan,’ will be held at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club on Wednesday 19th September from 5pm-6pm. The cost is $20 per head and Mrs. Morgan will be interviewed by local Malua Bay resident and author, Nikki Cooper. Doors open at 4.30pm.

JoAnn Morgan began her illustrious space career in the summer of 1958 and was the very first female engineer at Kennedy Launch Control Center for Apollo 11 Mission and the first human moon landing on July 16th, 1969.

Proud to be the first female to work on the Space Program, JoAnn recalls, “Kennedy Space Center had an environment that allowed women to thrive. There were no dull days. I learned something from every experience.”

Morgan was pictured in U.S. national magazines in the 1960’s as the only female on the Apollo launch team in the Firing Room among hundreds of men. She is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including 2 meritorious awards from President Bill Clinton, in 1995 and 1998.

If you are interested in coming along on the 19th September to hear ‘A Conversation with JoAnn Morgan’, go online and register now at or register by phoning 4472 5097 and paying $20 cash at the door on the night.

All enquiries to Julie Stuart 0438 590 505 or Nikki Cooper 0414 638 552.
