The Inimitable Winston Churchill

January 13, 2015
Dinner Program Presentation
by Dr. Elliot Engel
Greensboro Country Club

Our first event for the 2015 year was a dinner program on January 13th at the Greensboro Country CLub featuring Dr. Elliot Engel. Professor Engel's presentation showcased "The Inimitable Winston Churchill", who, despite experiencing a lifetime of personal failures and setbacks, persevered to become Prime Minister of England at age 62 with the outbreak of World War II. Perhaps Churchill had taken the advice of the outspoken Fritz Reiner who said, "Watch out for emergencies. They are your big chance."

Dr. Engel is an outstanding and engaging speaker and his presentation drew prolonged applause and many favorable comments. More than 70 people were in attendance despite the prediction of icy roads for the evening.
