Join us for Friends Lectures!
It’s been a tough year, but we’re happy to announce that the Friends Lectures are back for the fall! Even though we won’t be able to gather in Pillsbury Auditorium, you’ll still be able to “attend” and hear from a variety of interesting speakers via a Zoom-type platform.
It’s the same format you’re used to—just virtual. This means you can tune in from wherever you are whether that’s in St. Cloud, Rochester, up at the cabin, or wintering in Florida. During this strange time, we look for silver linings!
We want to give you the best possible virtual lecture experience and are still ironing out a few details, but we’re hoping to have the capability that allows viewers to ask questions of our speaker. You will also see familiar faces doing introductions.
So go ahead and mark the second Thursday of the month on your calendars at 11:00 a.m. CST. A fantastic speaker line-up is coming your way!
