and non-members
logo

Sautee Lunch & Learn, a popular, informal adult education program, provides an opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal and some "food for thought" with old friends and new. SNCA members and non-members are welcome. There is no admission charge (donations accepted); we ask only that you bring a dish to share for the potluck table. Doors open at 11:30am, with lunch at noon followed by the presentation. We usually finish around 1:30pm.

We meet in the historic gym at 11:30am on the first Tuesday for 8 months of the year: February - May; on break June-July-August; returning September - December.

Everyone has the option to bring a dish to share or a packed lunch for yourself. Or just come to enjoy the speaker.

REMINDER: Sautee Lunch & Learn takes a summer break during the months of June, July and August.

On Tuesday, March 7, we will honor Exceptional Children's Week with speaker Jane Grillo.

"In my world, Disability is the norm. It certainly is in my house. Many folks in Sautee know me as Joe's mom. My 21 year old son Joe has spastic quad Cerebral Palsy. He uses a wheelchair, he cannot speak, and needs a lot of support for his daily needs. But Joe is only one person with a disability. I have also worked as a disability advocate in White County Schools and around the state of Georgia. Let me welcome you into my world with a little conversation about disability etiquette, some statistics about the population and maybe a story or two."

Mark Warren, Design in Nature

Nature has a quiet, invisible force always pushing plants and animals toward success. We will have a look at both the botanical and animal sides of this, with our emphasis on native plants. What we see in our lifetime is the present version of each particular species' state of success, and it is worthwhile to remember two things about this phenomenon:

  • What you see before you is necessarily a view of what has proved to be successful up to now.
  • But the process is still ongoing. The force never sleeps.
