Sunday, August 20 at 3:00 pm -- Different Voices -- Our community discussion series will resume with the topic Voting.
Our democracy relies on free and fair elections. What makes an election “free” and what makes it “fair”? What gets in the way of voting having more value? Should people be required to vote, as they are in Australia? How should voter registration work? Should activist groups be allowed to sign up registrants? Should absentee voting be allowed so far in advance of the actual events leading up to the election? Does requiring an ID suppress votes? Does voter fraud matter?

Thursday, August 24 at 7:00 pm -- Colleen & Jim Van Hoven present Russia by River: Moscow to St. Petersburg. This program will focus on the history of today’s Russia and the architecture and culture of its two most important cities, as well as the extensive waterways that connect them. Colleen and Jim returned recently from a two-week excursion by water that included stays of several days in both Moscow and St. Petersburg and a voyage through the Russian countryside that took them almost to the Arctic circle, visiting cities, monasteries and other cultural sites along the way. They will present photographic highlights of the trip and discuss their impressions of today’s Russia and her people. Suggested Donation: $5.00.
