Two meeting members will be leading forums on subjects on which they have expertise. On March 31 Shawna Doran will present a forum on Haiti which she titles, 'Remember the Kids of Haiti.' Shawna will speak from her own experience in visiting Haiti and being touched by the people whom she met there. We will hear from Gefte "Jeff" Chery, the young man leading "Remember the Children of Haiti" project which has been helping with education for the very poor in Haiti. Shawna will bring her enthusiasm as well as information to enrich the meeting.
The following First Day, April 7, Jo Ann Lordahl will lead an interactive forum on the reading and writing of Poetry. If you have poems written by yourself or others which you would like to share, please bring them to read to the group. Jo Ann will be happy to share some of her own poetry but this is meant to be a participatory activity for poetry lovers (and would be lovers). The reading and writing of poetry is recognized as an avenue for reaching into the deeper levels of consciousness and expressing thoughts and feelings that are rarely communicated in ordinary exchanges. Perhaps this sharing will bring forth the poetry lying dormant within you.
