WHY LUNCH & LEARN

It's a chance to see others who are interested in the topic, not to mention friends, and to learn more about it. Usually there are between 20 and 30 of us. We have a good lunch too!

We don't go to hear a "speech"; the presentations are informal. There's likely to be some back and forth, also, between lunchers and speakers.

And yes, there's always something to learn. At the last meeting, on the County budget, it became clear how many small decisions have to be made along the way, out of the spotlight + ones that affect the final result but aren't the kind anyone takes a vote on. I guess they're procedural, but they can make a difference.

So try it out! Learn something new, have some interesting conversations, and then go your way. Wiser and well fed. --Diane Amussen
