multiracial awareness group

Multiracial Awareness Discussion Group next meeting takes place on:

Friday, June 11, 2021
10 AM – Noon
Auditorium
Reparations Part 2 (Making Amends)

We will continue our discussion of February meeting:

What is meant by reparations? Why talk about it? What would be the benefit of discussing and making reparations? What is “ H.R. 40, Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act?” Are Reparations already being done? Participants will be encouraged to read about Reparations prior to the meeting and then discuss areas of interest.

Everyone is invited to attend this especially important discussion. This will end our monthly meetings for now. We will reconvene in the early Fall. Feel free to alert the committee of any suggestions you might have for continued discussions around the area of Multiracial topics.

For more information or to receive email for this group, call or email Lois Schmidt or Joan Green.

June News from The Little Theatre Company

Little Theatre Company logo

Some good news at last for The Little Theatre Company! Members were able to meet in person after 14 months of waiting for the pandemic to wane. There was also some “not so good” news. Don Schiller decided to relinquish his long-term post as LTC treasurer. Don has been active in the LTC in stage roles, odd jobs, as treasurer, ticket and sales arrangements, and program design since 2004. Hooray for George Stamps, who agreed to accept the office of treasurer. More “not so good news” was the resignation of LTC secretary Mimi O’Donnell. Members were able, however, to applaud Patricia Fagan’s willingness to take over the job. You will hear more about her in a future issue. Meanwhile, The Little Theatre Company will resume its monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at 1:30 p.m. on the Auditorium stage. Here is your chance to be on stage with no rehearsals and no memorization deadlines. Please join us. All are welcome.
