This documentary tells the story of a medical institution that has been called a "Medical Mecca," the "Supreme Court of Medicine," and the "place for hope where there is no hope." The Mayo Clinic began in 1883 as an unlikely partnership between the Sisters of Saint Francis and a country doctor named William Worrall Mayo after a devastating tornado in rural Minnesota. It has grown into an organization that treats more than a million patients a year from all 50 states and 150 countries. Dr. Mayo had a simple philosophy he imparted to his sons Will and Charlie: "the needs of the patient come first." In a world where healthcare delivery is typically fragmented among individual specialties, the Mayo Clinic practices a multi-specialty, team-based approach that has, from its beginnings, created a culture that thrives on collaboration. (Historical Documentary; 110 min.) See page 4 of newsletter for a new program with lunch following this documentary.

Harry Truman called the war of 1812 “The silliest war we ever had.” Many historians agree. They call it “pointless,” “unnecessary,” or “impractical.” Come hear another opinion about the war that was necessary to rid ourselves of our inferiority complex and launch us west into our Manifest Destiny. Presented by Bob Wills,
retired history teacher.

Like a book discussion group….only with movies. Discussion will follow the film. Gaston (Louis Jourdan) is a restless Parisian playboy who moves from one mistress to another, while also spending time with Gigi (Leslie Caron), a precocious younger friend learning the ways of high society. The platonic relationship between Gaston and Gigi changes, however, when she matures, but the possibility of something lasting seems unlikely since he won't commit to one woman. Gigi refuses to be anyone's mistress, however, and Gaston must choose between her and his carefree lifestyle. Pizza lunch (Sponsored by Home Instead), served during the group discussion following the movie.
RSVP by 8/23. (G. 115 min. Comedy/Musical/Romance.)
