Hearts United Speaker Series
Part 1: "Ever Ancient, Ever New"
Dr. Bill Thierfelder started us off with the fascinating history of the Catholic Church in Gaston County. Filled with historic pictures, this informative talk is interesting for all.
Part 2: "Working Out a Picture of Happiness"
We all desire happiness for ourselves and for our children. Dr. Joseph Wysocki leads us through an examination of the importance of leisure in education and what that really means for us and our children.
