In 2015, the WPNA initiated what we hope will be a permanent series of Neighborhood Social Evenings with a Guest Speaker. The goal of each quarterly meeting is to learn something new while enjoying good food, good wine, and good conversation with our neighbors. The venue of the new Pace Academy Upper School Commons is ideal, and the hors-d'oeuvres, prepared and donated by Pace, have been incredible. Add in two special wines from Sherlock’s, and the congeniality flows!
In September, we hosted Sheffield Hale, the CEO of the Atlanta History Center. Then in November we welcomed Paul Morris, CEO of The Atlanta Beltline. Each speaker brought us up to date on developments with these important projects, and we also saw a glimpse of the future. Questions and answers followed the presentations.
The next Neighborhood Social Evening will be on Wednesday, February 17, 2016. The speaker will be Mr. Dan Rutz, a senior health communications specialist with the Division of Global HIV and TB, Center for Global Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the subject will be the History and Future of the CDC in Atlanta. We will start with our Annual Meeting at 5:45pm, followed by wine, cheese and hors-d’oeuvres at about 7pm, and then the CDC presentation.
An evite will go out soon by email to all members. We appreciate an RSVP for the food preparation. Please join us on February 17th at 5:45pm for a full evening.
