Sunday Platform – Anne Klaeysen: “Summertime, When the Living is Easy…For Some”
August 4, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
When I was a child, my siblings, cousins, and I spent the whole summer outside in the backyard and at the lake. We rode our bikes all over town. Even when it rained, we splashed in the puddles, and at night we played hide-and-seek and caught fireflies. We were very lucky. Too many children today do not have that freedom, and they suffer for it. Unsupervised play is essential for healthy childhood development. How can we support it?
Shared Charity: Social Service Board
Presider: Maggie Determann
FREE and open to the public.
Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest. Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day. While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
