Thanks to the Orcas community for supporting the Crossroads Lectures. We hope you will also enjoy the outstanding speakers for the upcoming 2011-2012 season who will be speaking on The Future of the Book, Current Dilemmas and the Internet, Our Place in the Expanding Universe, The American Empire, and Human Evolution.
Because we have deliberately kept the cost of a ticket at $10, our ticket sales cover only about half our costs. The Crossroads Associates and a small number of generous underwriters will allow us to continue to offer complimentary tickets to students and those who would not otherwise attend, as well as to keep single tickets affordable.
Would you please consider becoming a Crossroads Associate? The cost is only a little more than season tickets for two, $250 annually, and it includes two season tickets. Crossroads Associates are invited to the major planning meetings (usually in December) where we brainstorm for relevant and intriguing topics to include in the following season. Input from Associates has been very helpful to the Committee, and the planning meeting is lively, interesting and enjoyable. Associates are also invited to the small, private receptions held for the speakers, which Associates may also host, allowing you to engage in intimate discussion with the speakers.
If you are inclined to support the series to an even greater extent than with an Associate membership, you are encouraged to consider underwriting a lecture with a $1,000 contribution. In any case, please send a check made out to CROSSROADS to the Library (500 Rose Street, Eastsound), or pay by credit card on our website: orcascrossroads.org.
We look forward to seeing you this season.
