Sunday, November 17 saw our kick-off of the 2020 season with the annual Fair Share Giving Lasagna Luncheon. Leader Richard Koral gave a platform talk about the Society and we celebrated the activism and participation of our members and friends. A lasagna luncheon followed, with music and reflections by your fellow Society members on their connection to the Society and to you, the membership community. We remembered and celebrated Lifetime Members for their long-standing commitment and look towards the coming year.
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.
