Socrates Cafe plays host to great discussions

0

socrates columnOur Socrates Cafe was open for business last night, with more than 15 individuals discussing three questions:

  • How old do children have to be to play alone at the park?
  • How difficult is it to tell the difference between a prophet and a charlatan?
  • Agree or disagree: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

Join us on the second Thursday of each month for engaging conversations and friendly, informal interactions with your neighbors and fellow community members.

Next Cafe opens at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 9 – write the date and time down now, don’t wait!

See you there!

Valentine’s Day was a good day to celebrate Pinkalicious!  We read the book, make a bracelet, iced pink cupcakes, and decorate a tiara with sequins and jewels. Everyone got to take home a mini Rice Krispy for a Valentine’s Day treat.

 

A few of the girls posed with their tiaras.

Socrates Cafe meets second Thursday of each month

0

socrates columnOur Socrates Cafe met last night, with attendees braving single digit temperatures to enjoy great conversation and delicious treats.

 

Last night’s questions included:

 

 

 

  • Agree or disagree: “If people cannot write well, they cannot think well. And if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.”
  • If, as a recent statistic states, “1 in 5 people experience depression,” then is it an illness, or rather just a normal part of the human condition?
  • Discuss the morality / ethics of using drones. 

Join us March 12 – and each 2nd Thursday evening – as we explore diverse subjects and discuss questions in an open and informal manner.
