Invites you to attend an upcoming Special Interest Group event. Not only will you have fun, but you are likely to make new friends as well!

Please join us for any or all of these wonderful activities! For more information, please contact Denis Cohen, Creating Connections Group co-chair, or a group organizer listed below.

TAKE 4 CINEMA CLUB
Sunday, March 4 | 5:00 pm
Home of Kay Sude, 532 Moreno Road, Wynnewood
Our next discussion will be about the movie, "The Darkest Hour." A thrilling and inspiring true story begins at the precipice of World War II as, within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman) must face one of his most turbulent and defining trials: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation. As the unstoppable Nazi forces roll across Western Europe and the threat of invasion is imminent, and with an unprepared public, a skeptical King, and his own party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his darkest hour, rally a nation, and attempt to change the course of world history. Kay Sude is hosting the evening for a pre-Academy Award discussion with hors d'oeuvres, desserts and wine beginning at 5:00 pm; RSVP to Kay Sude.
