Our Program – What Is Welshness?

We are lucky to have two Welsh League members to examine this question -  with
opinions from the rest of us, no doubt!  

You are probably familiar with Graham Tubbs from his many entertaining sessions.
He presents:
1)Welsh or English? A light-hearted look at the choice facing a young Graham Tubbs
2)Brexit update

Lynne Hastie was born in Swansea, South Wales, and lived there for 41 years until
2007, at which time Lynne relocated to AZ to marry her American husband, David.
Lynne and David travel back to Wales at least once a year, and enjoy the many
connections that join Welsh and American cultures, discovering new ones along
the way! She lends a visual aspect to our program with:
“The American-Welsh Connection”

This is bound to be a fascinating topic, so let’s all come.  Refreshments to share are
always welcome.
