Pub Talks are regular opportunities for you to engage in conversations with others on a selected topic of interest, hot topic, local issues, etc. They are open to anyone from any point-of-view. The more diverse the discussion the more fruitful I think they will be. Last month the topic was religious freedom, dealing specifically with the current events of threatening Koran burning, the building of a NYC mosque near Ground Zero and what it means to be free as individuals and society.
This week the second round of Pub Talks are up. Topic: Does Money Buy Happiness? From the flyer…
It’s been said, “Money makes the world go round.”
But money is hard to come by. People are losing jobs, savings, houses, retirement & many are living with tighter budgets & fear of the future.
How did we get here? Who or what is to blame?
Is losing money or loving money the problem?
Is consumerism good, bad or neutral?
Would being rich make us happy?
Grab a beer & join the discussion.
There are two Pub Talks. First is Wednesday night at 7pm in downtown Crystal Lake at Williams Street Public House. Second is Thursday night at 7pm in downtown Woodstock at Odd Fellows. Hope you’ll join in an add your thoughts.
