Thank you all for an amazing season. We truly “imagined the possibilities” with a community art sculpture park in Seattle as presented by Mimi Gardner Gates, with music as a means of inclusion with Dr. Jonathan Overby, through the University of Wisconsin’s initiatives as explained by Chancellor Rebecca Blank and learned about the history of the classes through the lens of Downton Abbey as told by author Jessica Fellowes. 

We are very excited about next season and “Taking a closer look…” We hope you will join us: 

October 1, 2016 to hear Professor Charles Franklin
November 5, 2016 for Professor Erin Winkler’s presentation
March 4, 2017 with Professor Richard Halverson
April 8, 2017 to be inspired by Professor Kelly Wilz 

All meetings will be at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison. Doors open at 10 am and meetings begin at 11 am and end at 1 pm.

 —Linda Berman and the Board of Madison Civics Club
