September 11 – Pittsburgh’s Mansions
Author and historian, Melanie Linn Gutowski returns with another peek into Pittsburgh’s past. She will take us back in time to Pittsburgh’s Golden Age, from 1830 to the 1920’s. Her program will explore the history of that era through the extravagant and expansive homes that wealthy and prominent businessmen built in and around the city.
October 9 – Chernobyl: Causes, Cover-Up and Consequences
In 2016, local photographer, Michael Haritan traveled to the Ukraine to produce a photo documentation of the abandoned city of Pripyat and the last remaining inhabitants of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone-the scene of the world’s worst nuclear disaster in 1986. His presentation will cover events of the accident, and give us a rare view of the place and people who once lived, worked and died there.
Our October Speaker, Mr. Haritan, asked the Life Enrichment Committee to put a call out for donations to the Sisters of St. Basil in Philadelphia. The Sisters visit the Ukraine annually to aid orphans and the needy. If you would like to make a donation, please bring an item of cold weather clothing in sizes from toddler to adult.
