Sewanee Seminars for Lifelong Learning

In planning your cultural activities for the new year, please plan to attend Sewanee Seminars for Lifelong Learning on Thursday, Jan. 4, at noon. The sessions are held in Lower Cravens, on Kentucky Avenue, in Sewanee.
Pamela Macfie will present the program on “In Shakespeare’s Eternal Company.” Responding to an invitation to address what accounts for Shakespeare’s enduring appeal, Macfie will oer a talk that engages how richly, and in many ways how seamlessly, even unconsciously, some of Shakespeare’s most compelling speeches have become part of our own vocabularies of love and loss. Her presentation will include some opportunities for audience members to speak certain lines, all in the spirit of being in Shakespeare’s company.
She is the English Department Chair at the University of the South. She teaches courses on Dante, Shakespeare and Renaissance Poetry. She is married to Tom Macfie, the University Chaplain.
Please plan to arrive at Lower Cravens in time to enjoy coee and cookies, and to greet friends and neighbors. The talk will begin promptly at noon and last one hour. Parking is available in the Tennessee Williams parking lot. Be sure to park so that your license plate is clearly visible to the campus police.
Membership dues for Lifelong Learning are $12 per year. New members are always welcome. A $2 per session option is also available. Please call Anne Davis at (931) 924-4465 for more information.

Operation Noel

Providing Abundant Holidays for All
In just a few weeks, it will be Christmas. While many are already planning ahead about gifts to buy and food to eat, there are those not so fortunate. In our area, there are children who may not get presents and families that may not have an abundant holiday meal.
Each year the Sewanee Volunteer Fire Department (SVFD), in conjunction with FROST (the department’s Fund Raising Operational Support Team), organize the purchasing and distribution of food and toys for these families. All items will be delivered the morning of Dec. 23 by the SVFD and FROST.
But this important program cannot happen without help from the community. Please consider making a donation of money, nonperishable food items or new toys to Operation Noel this year and give back to your community this Christmas season.
If you would like to make a donation of money, nonperishable food items or new unwrapped toys, please take items to the Fire Hall or the Police Department, both located behind duPont Library, or Print Services, located in the old Beta House. For more information call 598-3400 and leave a message.
