Conversational Spanish

Bienvenidos to all who would like to practice spoken Spanish in a relaxed setting with others.  There are no books, no tests, and no homework; we all just want to improve and refresh the ability that we have in the language and help one another in doing so.  The círculo meets on Wednesdays from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. in the Library.  

Sunday book discussion
Join us Sundays at 9:00 a.m. in the St. Francis Room, for lively conversations on “When Faith Meets Reason.”  Each week we read and discuss one chapter, and each chapter is written by a different scholar.  All are welcome to come, and it is not necessary to have read the book.  “When Faith Meets Reason,” edited by Charles W. Hedrick and printed by the Polebridge Press is available for your Kindle or online at For more information, contact Mary Gurley.
Wonderful Wednesdays begin in October!
Join us for worship at 5:30 p.m. in the Church, social time and catered dinner at 6:00 in the Community Center, (for dinner reservations, please sign up at Coffee Hour or call 941-349-5616 x5 by noon the Tuesday before, $10pp), then programs after dinner.
