Common Ground is delighted to announce that the classroom at our Deerfield Center, at 815 Rosemary Terrace, will be dedicated in memory of Marjorie Lindsay Reed.
 
Marjorie was a dear friend to all Common Grounders. She was a long-time Board member and served twice as Chair of the organization. A major benefactor of CG, Marjorie Reed contributed even more with her ideas, inspirations, and unflagging support for the group she had embraced since its birth in 1975.
Marjorie passed away on May 1, 2018.

Owing to the expected ice storm Tuesday night (2/5-6/19), Kenneth James' Wednesday morning program on "Unwitting Bodhisattvas," originally scheduled for February 6-13 is postponed. It will now be held February 13-20.

The scheduled Wednesday a.m. class for 2/20/19, "American Jews Face a Choice," featuring Herbert Bronstein and Jim Kenney is cancelled. It will be rescheduled in the Spring-Summer session.
CG Crystal Lake's March program will be held on Monday, March 11, from 7:00-9:00 pm. The presentation will feature Jim Kenney on "The Eleven Nations of North America." We're sorry that an unfortunate mix-up resulted in the CG Bulletin's listing March 4 as the event date.
