Next month, we kick-off our 2016 Stone Soup and Speakers Series on Thursday, January 28th, 6:00-7:30pm. These delightful programs are held each month over the winter months on the final Thursday of each month. We begin the evening with a simple meal of homemade soup followed by a short presentation by a featured speaker.
The theme for this year's series is "Lessons From The Journey.” Each month a featured speaker will include a slide presentation of a recent journey or adventure and explore the lessons learned along the way.
This year’s series will begin on Jan. 28th with our own Executive Director, Mark Smith, who recently completed walking the Camino de Santiago – a 500-mile ancient pilgrimage across Spain.
