Discussion: Italy and Some of Her Wonders

“On Tuesday, September 5th at 6:30 p.m. in Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room, we will be taking off for several wonderful stops in Italy!

Italy has so many adventures and it is difficult to cover all of them on this trip, so we will be visiting several of her beautiful locations arriving in Milan for a quick visit, then onto Lake Como, we will leave Lake Como and go back through Milan and to Rapallo, Portofino, Santa Margherita and  the famed Cinque Terra villages. We will leave the Ligurian coast and go to Rome and see the Coliseum, Spanish Steps, Trivia fountain and the Vatican, from Rome we will head south to Pompeii, Capri and the beautiful city of Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

Please remember to bring your walking shoes and an Italian themed dish to share and your own drinks.  If you have any questions prior to our get together which you would like us to answer in the session, please submit them to us so we can make sure we answer all of them. We look forward to seeing you as we share this part of Italy with you!” – The Travel Club


Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “Hillbilly Elegy” by J.D. Vance. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“This is a passionate & personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over 40 years, has been reported on with growing frequency & alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J.D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, & class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America, J.D. Vance’s grandparents were “dirt poor & in love” & moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, & eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the saga plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version. Most of Vance’s family struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, & were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, & trauma so characteristic of their part of America. Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demands of their chaotic family history.” – Amazon

Book Club!

The Book Club invites you to join them this coming Wednesday, June 21st to discuss “Born on a Blue Day” by Daniel Tammet.

“A journey into one of the most fascinating minds alive today—guided by the owner himself. Bestselling author Daniel Tammet (Thinking in Numbers) is virtually unique among people who have severe autistic disorders in that he is capable of living a fully independent life and able to explain what is happening inside his head. He sees numbers as shapes, colors, and textures, and he can perform extraordinary calculations in his head. He can learn to speak new languages fluently, from scratch, in a week. In 2004, he memorized and recited more than 22,000 digits of pi, setting a record. He has savant syndrome, an extremely rare condition that gives him the most unimaginable mental powers, much like those portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in the film Rain Man. Fascinating and inspiring, Born on a Blue Day explores what it’s like to be special and gives us an insight into what makes us all human—our minds” – Amazon

“The story of two men’s obsession with the Chicago World’s Fair, one its architect, the other a murderer. The Devil in the White City draws the reader into a time of magic and majesty, made all the more appealing by a supporting cast of real-life characters, including Buffalo Bill, Theodore Dreiser, Susan B. Anthony, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Archduke Francis Ferdinand, and others.”
