It meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. The Salon is for men and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in civil dialogue. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing, fun, and thought provoking. Next up is:

Midterm Elections: Déjà vu or a New Direction?

Every two years, Americans have the privilege of going to the polls and voting for local and national leaders. How we vote depends in part upon our view of the current environment. How would you answer the question, "Are things worse than ever or better than ever?” What do you base your opinion upon when you think about the state of our nation? Optimist or pessimist, do you believe we’re in a prolonged period of inaction or poised to move forward with changes in leadership? Let’s talk and listen to each other.Join us on Friday, October 24 at 1:30 at the Bainbridge Public Library as we discuss our expectations surrounding the midterm elections. Here are two readings that may help spur your thinking on the topic.
