ESU Sandhills Branch

President's Message

Our new season is just a few months away and I hope that as a current member you will renew your membership or if not a current member that you will join the Sandhills Branch of The English-Speaking Union. I believe this season will be one of the most interesting and exciting we have offered, with several nationally known presenters.  Our program booklet contains a complete listing of the topics, speakers, and dates for next season. Click here to view a copy. Please share this information with others who may be interested.

While our regularly scheduled programs will be both entertaining and informative, we continue to seek other means to bring our members together. Our special interest groups, focusing on Winston Churchill, the Roosevelts, and International Affairs, have been very successful. Please contact me with any suggestions you may have for additional groups.
