The Global Connections (GC) discussion group members decided that it would be great to have an in-person session once a month. Their first in person meeting happened on December 20th. It was a joyful celebration. The GC president, Bob Persiko, submited a request for a room at the Municipal Building for the last Tuesday of the months of January through April. On Tuesday, Jan 24th, they met in person in room 241. It was an informal moment when the group could share thoughts and writings.
