The Hall will be open for an informal gathering this Tuesday, July 4, 2017. The grill will be open over a wood fire, and the Hall will be open for shared food, conversation, and informal program. There will be an 'open mic' for speak-out or songs, with a suggested theme: What does it mean to each of us to be an American, citizen of the USA, inhabitant of the earth. All are welcome. July 4 is also the anniversary of the opening of the Hall, July 4 1953.
