1. Honeybees and Beekeeping-The Basics
Local resident and beekeeper, Jean Miller will show us the difference between honey bees and other stinging insects, their development, including how and why queens are made, castes of bees and their “jobs”, nectar into honey, challenges they face and what we can do to help them.

2. Making Sense of Putin’s Russia
Abby Schrader, Professor of History at F&M College, asks: Who is Putin and how did he rise from obscurity to Russia’s “new tsar”? What is his agenda? How has he distorted democracy, demonized liberalism, deployed a cult of personality and weaponized an ethnonationalist historical worldview to justify wars to achieve his endgame?

3. Hinduism in America
The influence of Hindu thought and practice in American culture is far greater than most people realize. From meditation and yoga to Star Wars and The Matrix, Hindu ideas are everywhere. Dr. Jeffrey Long, Religious Studies scholar at Elizabethtown College, will trace the history of Hinduism and its influence on American culture.
