World Affairs Discussion Group
Are you fascinated by international affairs and the world of foreign policy? If so, please join Library Director Steve Butzel and a group of your peers in the Hilton Garden Inn Room on Mondays to discuss two topics that are voted on in advance by the group.
If you plan on attending and would like to vote on the week's possible topics, send our Director an email at skbutzel@cityofportsmouth, and he will send you a link to the webpage where you can vote. The list of topics is posted each Wednesday afternoon and voting concludes that Friday afternoon. At that point, the Director will send out an email to the group letting them know the two selected topics, and a list of links to suggested articles.
Where do we get our possible topics and a set of suggested articles from each week? From the World Affairs Council of America's Weekly World News Update webpage.
For more information, contact our director, email@example.com.
International Friends Soup & Salad Social at SNHU
The next International Friends event is a Soup & Salad Social with games, scheduled for Friday, January 26th from 5:30-7:30 pm at SNHU. They can accommodate the first 40 students who sign up, and the first 40 community members (including children or other family members joining you) who sign up. After a get-acquainted activity, attendants enjoy some hot soup and good conversation, followed by playing a variety of fun games to help everyone meet a mix of people. We invite you to bring your own favorite game to share. Our hope is that you’ll enjoy the gathering that day, and maybe make a connection with a student you’d like to later invite (with one of his/her friends, so our students are going in pairs) to join you for a winter outing or a visit to your home. If a friendship develops that you wish to continue, that’s great. If not, no worries.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up and to give names of those attending, putting RSVP January 26 in the subject line. Deb will then follow up on January 22nd to confirm your participation and details.
