Discussion Group

We are a group for anyone interested in good discussion and polite debate. The meetings are informal and laid back with no pressure to speak up if you prefer to just listen. We meet bi-monthly, the last Sunday afternoon of every second month. Due to the increased popularity of the group, we will now be meeting at the Mahogany Beach Club. Give it a try and join the conversation!

Topics, along with some informational videos, and questions will be sent to the participants the week prior to discussion. Hope to see you there!
