There are many ways that human beings bind together - as individuals; as groups that work and play and celebrate together; as communities; as civic entities and many more. We are bound together by shared beliefs or interests or rules or fear or affinity or need. We are bound together for good; for better and sometimes for worse; in the short term or for the long haul. Central in all of this binding together is a quality of commitment.

We've moved our November plan for a Generational Panel to December The theme will encompass reflections on family and traditions, especially those that surround the holidays and seasonal events. Join us for a thoughtful exploration of how things have stayed the same, and how things have changed, through multiple generations and nearly a century of family traditions.
December's theme is Family, and we'll kick off the month with some videos, songs, and introspection about defining "family." Marnie Karger will lead this program and encourages everyone to come with an open mind and a intention to explore what family means to them.
It's time once again for a panel discussion! Like our past panels, this one will be made up of four guests, each representing a different generation of our membership. While we'll allow some comments from the rest of the audience, the focus will be on hearing the thoughts and perspectives of our four panelists.
As this discussion follows the general election, we will invite responses to questions about elections, voting experiences, and attitudes about politics in general.
Please join Marnie Karger as she leads a short exploration into how musical harmony can be seen as a metaphor for human relationships.
Join us today as we welcome guest speaker, Stephanie McCullough-Cain, who will be speaking to us about the Black Lives Matter movement. Stay tuned for more information about this program.
There will be no program today. Enjoy your holiday and seasonal gatherings. Programs will resume on Sunday, January 8th, 2017.
