CurrentEvents1000 "Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government..."--Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, 1789. The members of the Current Events Group at the Arlington Heights Senior Center strive to stay well-informed and have been doing so each week for more than 20 years. On Thursday, January 28, the group celebrated its 1,000th session. It is the Library's longest-running group and started as an offshoot of a Great Books Discussion Group with Tom Bernett as the original leader. He created the model for discussion that they use today and led the group for 18 years. The current discussion leaders are George Galvan, Amy Burke, Robert Gilden, and until recently, Taft Lowell.   The group has a very loyal following. Original group members Julie Martin and Ellen Hoffman attended the special event as well as many members who have been coming for up to 15 years. The popular group started with 8 or 9 members and now has to be capped at 50 due to space limitations. The Library congratulates this great group on reaching its 1,000th session!
