Lectures Series Schedule

Dave Harralson gave another great presentation on "The Golden Age of Sarasota" on May 4 at the Selby Library. There was excellent attendance again for his second presentation.  

Based on the good response it was decided to continue with our own Sarasota Sister City lecture series and the schedule of lectures is given below.  The presentations will be followed by our Meet & Greets, hopefully at a nearby restaurant.  The locations for the lectures and Meet & Greets will be conveyed well ahead of the sessions.  Thank you to all our presenters, we know how much work goes into preparing the lectures. 

Each presentation should start off with one or two slides introducing the Mission of SCAS and our list of Sister Cities. The presentations will provide good exposure for SCAS, hopefully increase our membership and garner a bit of financial benefit.
