Front Porch Discussion Group
Wednesday, May 13, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Members only–free. To register, please scroll down. Prior to the program, registered attendees will receive details for joining this virtual program via Zoom.
This program is presented by the Village Near North Circle, but is open to any members of the Village. Want to recapture a little of the old days, when you could sit on the front porch, talk with your friends, and meet your new neighbors? The Front Porch Discussion Group will bring a little of that feeling to our currently isolated life situations. Members connect with each other virtually through Zoom and discuss 2-3 topics of general interest. The meeting is designed so you also can meet some new virtual neighbors and get more human-to-human contact. The topics are pre-chosen to draw mostly from life’s experiences and opinions. Specialized knowledge is not required. But everyone needs to invest 15-30 minutes before the meeting to read a few selected articles on the common discussion topics. Come and increase your human-to-human connections during these exceptional times.
Pre-registration is mandatory and space is limited to 20 members. Register by Tuesday, May 12 and you will then receive an email invitation with the articles for pre-reading.
