The 2016 Election...Up To Now
After a leisurely summer of members enjoying a concert of "Music In The Park" in July, and a "Gals' Night Out" in August, the Program Committee of TTN/LI welcomed Fall 2016 with a most timely and captivating program. One hundred forty members and guests gathered in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library for a most engaging lecture, "The 2016 Election...Up To Now." The speaker James Coll, returned to address our chapter after his well received 2016 Women's History Month lecture. Mr. Coll is a professor of Constitutional Law, a NYPD detective, and a very popular speaker at the Hutton House at LIU/Post lecture series. Our members were thoroughly engaged, participated in a Q&A, and continued the discussion while enjoying refreshments after the lecture. The timing was perfect. Just five hours after the program, and just 14 miles away from the library, the first Presidential Debate took place at Hofstra University. No doubt that our members followed up the program, a warm-up act for the debate, by watching the Presidential Debate at home later that day. Read more...
