Great Decisions
Wednesdays, July 26, August 23, and September 27.
Morning session: 10am - 12pm, click here to register
Afternoon session: 1pm - 3pm, sorry this session is FULL
Moderator: Tony Sakey. In these tumultuous times, there is nothing more important than being informed. The fact is we have a divided nation and a new president without Global Affairs experience. Those two simple facts are worrisome to the thinking citizen and attempting to understand the global repercussions of decisions made by our leaders is important to all of us. 

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. The group will meet once a month over eight months. Please note the underscore of the words Discussion Group in the above paragraph! The purpose of our gatherings is to enlighten, inform and share viewpoints on matters of global importance to our country. Sound exciting? Great! Come, be involved. Space is limited.  Our topics for 2017 are:
  • The Future of Europe: Coping with Crisis - February 22
