With all the encouragements to spend, spend, spend we've witnessed over the past few weeks, today is a day to step back and reflect. Giving Tuesday is a movement begun as a sort of antidote to the commercialization of the holiday season. It's a day to think about all the ways nonprofit organizations make life better. Whether you interests run to the arts or the environment, shelter pets or soup kitchens, please take a bit of time to share your time, talents, or treasure with those working hard to make a difference. Thanks.
We have another author visit and book signing for you this weekend! John Burke, avid collector and seasonal Green Lake area resident, has written a book - Never Enough: Confessions of a Capricious Collector.
Our Thursday Morning Conversations wrap up for 2015 with a visit this morning from Melanie Simpkins of the Green Lake County Health Unit. November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and that will be the starting point of the conversation. Melanie did assure me that our donuts were okay (in moderation). Please join us at 10:00 in front of the fireplace.
