Building a Summer Lyceum series takes a dedicated team and a lot of work year round.

A team of committee members works in the fall to vet and contact potential speakers and sponsors, to meet the goals set for the following season. In the winter, another team works to assemble and prepare informational materials for printing posters, brochures and for our website. The spring is for finalizing logistics and the annual mailing party.

And our favorite part, Summer Sunday mornings we prepare for the day's speaker, arrange flowers, greet our audience, provide hearing and other assistance, host a reception, collect donations, sell books for authors to sign, and generally enjoy another day of community building in our fabulous Monadnock region!
