Why Poetry-  A continuation of Poetry Appreciation with Lisa Charnock 

Come meet with us on the first Sunday of the month at the Church to read poems and talk about how they fit into our lives.  Everyone is welcome, no experience required!  The poems will be provided, just bring your curiosity and your willingness to delve. 

We’ll meet from 2:00-4:00. If you can’t make it every month, come when you can!  Event is from November 2023- December 2024.
