LUNCHEON AND CHILDREN’S BOOK COLLECTION
When: Tuesday, December 17, 2013 Time: 12:00 p.m.
Where: The Bistro at Mercy Ridge, 2525 Pot Spring Road, Timonium, MD.
Hosted by: Helen (“Glee”) Lohm
RSVP: To Melissa Behm, 410-661-4172 (home) or 443-980-9080 (cell), by December 13, 2013 with choice of lunch entrée (crab cake or chicken salad) (Please advise when calling if you need any dietary substitutions.) We’ll begin this year’s events with one of the club’s annual favorites, our collection of children’s books. We’ll later take these to campus for the children of the students in the Women With Children program. This year we have the pleasure of meeting over lunch, compliments of club member Glee Lohm. Our menu will feature: green salad, choice of entrée (crab cake or chicken salad) accompanied by French fries, dessert (peppermint ice cream and cookies), and beverage. (Many club members will remember the wonderful lunch we enjoyed at The Bistro in April 2012.) The children range from age 2 to teenager, so we like to gather a selection of books that spans from toddler to high schooler. I’m afraid the college hasn’t yet updated the student profiles on the website, so I don’t have specific ages or more information about the students at this time. I’ll try to learn more and be able to share that with you over lunch. Of course, we’ll also share updates on events on campus: recent board of trustees’ decisions, the progress with the strategic initiatives, including coeducation, and the fundraising efforts for campaigns like the library renovation.
When: Sunday, February 9, 2014 Time: 2:00 p.m.
(inclement weather date: Sunday, February 16, 2014, 2:00 p.m.)
Where: June Behm’s home, 5716 Oakshire Road, Baltimore, MD
RSVP: To June Behm, by February 4, at 410-542-8983
Spend an afternoon talking about books! Come to share suggestions of personal favorites and get ideas for what to read next. We’ll also have a book-club style talk about When a Crocodile Eats the Sun: A Memoir of Africa, by Peter Godwin. Recounting the beauty and the terror of living in Zimbabwe, Mr. Godwin, says a New York Times review, “creates an indelible picture of life in that besieged and battered land.… His account of his family’s history and his parents’ lives in an increasingly desperate Zimbabwe is written with the unsparing eye of a journalist and the tender, conflicted emotions of a son. He has written a powerful and deeply affecting book.” (In paperback, audio, and e-book .)
