Announcing the
ESU Sandhills 2019-2020 Season:
Celebrating 40 Years of Education, Entertainment & Inspiration

The ESU Sandhills Branch was founded in 1979. During the following 40 years, we welcomed a diverse group of speakers, including:  journalists, an astronaut, a number of Cabinet Secretaries, a former Governor, a TV commentator and, perhaps, a spy.

Please join us – in our 41st year – as we continue our mission of bringing topical, thought-provoking and entertaining programs to our members.  You just never know what you're going to learn!
