I want to thank all of you personally for your support in making our 2015 season a smashing success.
As in the past I am striving to bring some of the most interesting and knowledgeable speakers to our membership along with a potpourri of interesting topics.
We have been busy this summer organizing a calendar for 2016 season. Some speakers we have already secured and there are others we are still speaking with.
Our 2016 season schedule is here, and here are a few highlights
· Thursday, January 7th, 2016. Speaker Dr. Ralph Nurnberger, Ph.D., professor of International Relations at Georgetown University, on “Making Sense of the Senseless Middle East.”
· Thursday, January 21st, 2016. Speaker Ben Brody, photographer and documentarian of the Afghanistan conflict with Speaker Ret. Major General Ronald Silverman, Commander 3rd Medical Command and Task Force 3 in Iraq, recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal, and many more commendations.
· February 17th, 2016 we will discuss Sports as a means of bringing communities together with ACE award finalist for Best Sports Documentary Ira Berkow, sports writer for the New York Times. In 2001 he shared the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.
· Monday, February 29th, 2015. Spend time with us in “An English Garden”. Campion Platt, interior designer and architect and Keith Williams, recipient ASLA Award of Honor, 2013 in landscape architecture will share their ideas for the future.
March 24th, 2016 we have a very special evening planned. Our cabaret evening will be in memory of Confrey Phillips and Muriel Siebert. This is going to an evening of dining, dancing and entertainment. We are working hard on securing a venue and would be for the first time we are planning to put together a committee to oversee this wonderful undertaking.
Save the dates March 10, April 4 and 28, details to be announced.
I look forward to seeing you this season!
