We're here to host friendly, interesting discussions on the topics of the day in a thoughtful, "grown-up" manner.  Think of it as an antidote to all the confrontational bombast of the cable channels these days.

We'll meet in a comfortable setting with a pre-arranged topic and hear everyone's views ... or if you want to just listen in, that's fine too.  Exercise your neurons, stimulate your conversational skills, and prepare to have an interesting time!  Drop in and out of the group as your schedule allows, we'll keep it informal.

We have no agenda, philosophy, or point of view ... that is up to the members present to work out in each meeting.  A variety of views is encouraged.  

Escape from the mundane, put on your thinking cap, and meet some of the most interesting people in Greenville!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
