We are privileged to have the eminent historian/author Charles Bryan at all three of our Open University locations in February. Dr. Bryan has announced that his topic for those appearances will be “What Makes Great Nations Great?”
He will still have available copies of his new book Imperfect Past: History in a New Light available for purchase and signing, as announced in our newsletter. Dr. Bryan will speak at St. Luke Lutheran on Feb. 1; at St. Mary Catholic on Feb. 3 and at First Presbyterian on Feb. 4–all at 12:30.
Richmond City schools are closed again tomorrow which means that our Lunch-n-Life program at St. Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday, January 27th, is cancelled. We will be opening the office at 10:00am on Wednesday and we will keep our fingers crossed about Thursday’s Open University (OU). If Richmond City schools are closed, the OU is cancelled. If there is a delayed opening, we operate at the normal scheduled times.
We hope everyone is doing well with all this snow. Be very careful if you venture out – Julie
Due to the enormous amount of snow that hit RVA over the weekend AND Richmond City schools being closed, Open University will not meet at St. Luke Lutheran on Monday, January 25th.
Paula and I will be working from home Monday, checking phone messages and answering emails if you need to get in touch with us.
Please be safe and stay warm and please check in with your elderly neighbors. – Julie
Is everyone ready for another Open University Session!? We begin our Winter courses next Monday, January 18th. Even though the nation celebrates the life of Dr. King and many businesses are closed on Monday, the Open University WILL MEET. We are not closed for MLK day.
Therefore, we hope to see everyone at Luke Lutheran on January 18th, at St. Mary Catholic on January 20th, and at First Presbyterian on January 21st!
