  • Carl’s Story

    Cost:  Free

    Date:  Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 11:00 a.m.

    Speaker: Noretta Willig, author

    Carl’s Story begins in the woods near St. Mihiel, France on September 16, 1918. On that victorious day, when the US Army won its first battle in Europe and the war was just days from ending, Carl Willig, a doughboy in company H and the uncle of author Noretta Willig, was killed. His remains could not be found. For three generations, his family felt the anguish of that loss. Then, ninety years after Carl’s death, Noretta’s phone rang and a genealogist identified Noretta as Carl’s next of kin. Why? Because “probably they found something.” Searching a trunk filled with faded photographs and letters, Noretta met Carl across the years and was introduced to a powerful young man. Carl’s Story is about the almost forgotten heroes, those who must be remembered. It is an American story — of family and duty, discovery and honor — about treasures lost then found.

  • Gettysburg: The Address

    Cost:  Free

    Date:  Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 11:00 a.m.

    Speaker: Gary Augustine, historian

    On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln mounted a horse to ride out to a plot of land south of town to make a few remarks dedicating a recently constructed cemetery where many of the Union soldiers who had died in the battle were interred. These remarks inscribed on the Lincoln memorial, recited and in many cases memorized by school children, are well known to most Americans. Yet how, when, and where Lincoln wrote these few words are the subject of dispute by historians. Join the speaker as he attempts to untangle these mysteries in telling the story of the Gettysburg Address.

  • New Eyes: A Unifying Vision of Science and Spirituality

    Cost:  Free

    Date:  Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 11:00 a.m.

    Speaker: Steven P. Treu, Author and Chief Visionary Officer at Quantum Revolution, Inc.

    Science and spirituality have long been considered to be in conflict with each other, but it is becoming clear that the two disciplines are not mutually exclusive – they are merely different ‘languages’ that explain the same thing. Quantum physics, in particular, offers dynamic therapeutic applications while also providing broad support for the profound wisdom of the world’s best-known spiritual teachers … which ultimately unites all religious perspectives. Steven Treu will discuss his book “New Eyes” which links the brilliant findings of the world’s greatest scientists (Einstein, Planck, Bohr, Susskind, etc.) together with the insights of the world’s greatest spiritual leaders (Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Muhammad, etc.) in simple terms.
