Similar to Tuesday Forum, "Conversations With..." is a new monthly program, with speakers sharing a variety of interesting topics. Dessert and coffee/tea is served, and space is sometimes limited, so give us a call if you plan to attend (827-3972) - not necessarily required, but helpful to know how many to feed. The program is free, but donations for future programs are welcome.
Usually the Second Wednesday of each month, at 1:00 pm

February 10th - Linda McGee
Where do you keep your medicines? Are they in different places—with some in the medicine cabinet,
some in the kitchen, and some in the bedroom or elsewhere? As a parent, grandparent, or family
member, it’s important that you organize and keep track of your medicines. After all, you will want to know where a particular medicine is when you or someone else needs to find it. And you will want to keep your medicines secure so that a child, or a teenager, or even a stranger, does not get into them. That way, you can help prevent an accidental injury, as well as do your part to stop the possible abuse of prescription medicines. Director of the non-profit organization, The River Coalition, Linda will share important tips about how to safely store and dispose of your medications.
March 9th - Hope Johnson
Hope Johnson will share slides and stories about her experience as a Fulbright English Teacher in Russia. "The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant programs place grantees in schools overseas to supplement local English language instruction and to provide a native speaker presence in the classrooms."
April 13th - Sean Gaskell
May 11th - Lois-Ann Holmes
Explore the world of Geo-Caching with Lois-Ann Holmes. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. It's a great way to explore the outdoors with family, friends, and fellow "geocachers". Who knows, there might even be a cache at the library!
