Peninsula Seniors Lecture Series March 2015
Palos Verdes homes owners have a wonderful opportunity in March to hear several interesting topics at the Peninsula Seniors Lectures Series. These Lectures take place at Hesse Park located at 29301 Hawthorne Boulevard, Rancho Palos Verdes, in the Fireside Room on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
March 4, 2015 – Sherry Erickson and the Cup of Water Players will perform “Good News.” Cup of Water Players began in 1994 with a small group of actor/singers who wanted to take quality musical theater to those who could no longer get out to enjoy it. They have rewritten and adopted shows that will be performed (just an hour running time) at local venues such as retirement and convalescent homes, church groups and women’s clubs. Good News is a show set at fictional Tait College during the 20’s when colleges were as much a social scene as an academic one and will feature such great songs as “Button Up Your Overcoat,” “Keep Your Sunny Side Up,” “Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries,” “Together” and many more.
March 11, 2015 – Dr. Charles Spurgeon will speak on “Seven Ages of Man,” based on the insights of Shakespeare. He will examine how poets have defined the seven life stages and how we respond to our senior years. There will be a discussion on the wisdom and insight that English literature gives us. Dr. Spurgeon teaches at Marymount California University where he is a professor emeritus in British Literature.
March 18, 2015 – Dana Graham, realtor and life long resident of Palos Verdes will be making a presentation entitled “Real Estate Realities and Myths.”
March 25, 2015 – Joe Mardesich will be presenting “Spies.” Information is imperative when national security is at stake both in discovering the secrets of potential enemies or protecting our own. Lord Palmerston said, “a country has no permanent friends, only permanent interests.” This is the narrative of the lecture – from Benedict Arnold to cyber war. Joe is a native Californian and a teacher for 51 years.
