Dinner at the Square: American Values in the Age of Hyper-Partisanship

Jan 27, 2014 5:30-7:30 PM

St. John’s Episcopal Church 211 N. Monroe St. downtown Tallahassee
Founder and President of the Institute for American Values, a New York City based think tank focused on rebuilding civil society, David Blankenhorn has spent his career thinking creatively and provoking constructive discourse about some of the most important and controversial cultural issues of our time. As we find ourselves increasingly locked down inside ideological camps, David defies categories, crosses boundaries, and offers fresh and compelling thinking where we seem most stuck. Our discussion will be wide-ranging and free-wheeling and will focus not just on problems (like hyper-partisanship) but also on solutions (like how to build stronger communities). Facilitated by his long-time friend and Village Square Board Member Bill Mattox, if you’re tired of thinking inside the box then this one’s for you.

Tickets are $27 each through January 23 (or $50 for a couple), and $35 per ticket after if tickets are still available.

Dinner at the Square: Faith vs. Science

Apr 21, 2015 5:30-7:30 PM

St. John’s Episcopal Church, 211 N. Monroe St. downtown Tallahassee
There are few areas of the culture war with deeper and more consequential divisions than the ongoing clash between faith and science. And just like with our other divisions, we’re having difficulty navigating the complexities of both faith and science without falling into our angry tribes (tribes that diminish either faith or science). Rather than having an ongoing conversation of substance about how to apply our exploding understanding of the world around us to solve problems, our communication descends into name-calling and made-up “facts” that support what we want to believe is true (but isn’t necessarily). People of faith feel attacked and marginalized in a world where rapid scientific and technological advancements seem to outpace our ability to use them wisely. Join us.

Speakers:
Harrison Prosper, Ph.D., FSU Department of Physics
Mike McHargue AKA “Science Mike”

Tickets are $27 each through April 17 (or $50 for a couple), and $35 per ticket after if tickets are still available.

This is one of the funniest and most heartwarming plays to ever take the stage. The play was also made into a very popular movie in 1981 which won Academy Awards for Henry Fonda and Katherine Fonda. ‘On Golden Pond’ begins with the arrival of an old, long-married couple to their lakeside cottage where they have summered for 44 years. They are estranged from their only daughter, Chelsea, who comes to the cottage to celebrate her father’s 80th birthday. Chelsea announces that she and her new boyfriend are taking a trip to Europe and ask the old couple to watch the man’s teenaged son why they are gone. Ethel and Norman agree and the experience teaches the old man how to trust and communicate with his daughter. ‘On Golden Pond’ will be presented on Friday, March 28th and Saturday, March 29th at 7:30pm and on Sunday, March 30th at 2:30pm. Advanced tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for Seniors/Students and are on sale at Miss Myrts and Center Drugs in Cairo. All tickets at the door will be $12.

Stephen Foster State Park in White Springs, FL
Over 4 Million Lights and a Winter Wonderland with real SNOW!
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host the Festival of Lights, displaying more than four million lights throughout the park, December 2 – 31, 2011 each evening until 9:00 p.m., closed Christmas Night, December 25.



Visitors can enjoy the holiday sights and sounds as they drive through the park to see unique holiday light displays, including the majestic oak trees adorned with thousands of lights, an antebellum Museum dressed in full holiday splendor and a gingerbread village located at the Gift Shop and Craft Square. The centerpiece of the park’s light display is the Carillon Tower, which illuminates the night sky standing more than 200 feet tall, dressed from head to toe in lights as holiday music rings from its bells. The Stephen Foster Museum will be open extended hours until 8:30 p.m. nightly. Cousin Thelma Boltin’s Gift Shop will be open everyday until 9:00 p.m. where complimentary refreshments are served and the Craft Square comes alive with a bonfire and marshmallow roast for everyone. Wolverine Concessions will also feature delicious treats including favorites such as hot chili, hand made potato chips and their world famous fried Oreos!



Live holiday music will be performed at the Stephen Foster Museum nightly from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. If any school groups, church choirs or other musical groups would like to perform, they should contact Diane Simmons at 386-397-2733 for more information.



Santa will visit the park every evening through December 24th and will make appearances throughout the entire park during the festival.



Visitors can experience the festival via horse drawn wagon and carriage rides. Two large beautiful Percheron Horses will pull a large wagon on a one mile ride around the main park drive each evening. Take a leisurely 20 minute ride through the park and sing carols while viewing the millions of lights on display!



To celebrate the park’s award-winning light display, a special kickoff event hosted in conjunction with the Town of White Springs will take place on Friday, December 2, 2011, at 5:30 p.m. The Town of White Springs’ Christmas Parade travels down Main Street and continues through the gates of the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Everyone attending is invited to a free hot dog supper with cookies in the park’s Nelly Bly’s Kitchen. Regular park admission fees are waived for this Grand Opening kickoff event, but a donation of at least one new, unwrapped toy is requested per vehicle which will be used to help local families in need.
