September 8

Reinventing yourself should be considered another  art-form for our September 8 speaker.  Ann Hobgood has created designs for the needlework industry, designed commercial interiors,  pioneered the preservation of Glencoe Mill Village, worked for UNC and most recently in her retirement has started “Recycled Folks,” a hobby turned business.  Recycled  Folks are sculptures assembled from found objects such as scrap metal, wood, ceramic, glass and plastic found under old houses, from the river, deserted mill buildings and flea markets.  Her journey from single Mom trying to make a living for her children to today is illuminating, interesting and awe inspiring.  Ann will bring some of her folks and show us how she creates them.

October 6

Rev. Ray Wittman has agreed to let us “get to know him!”  He will speak about his journey to us, his family, his favorite moments in the ministry, humorous stories, his hobbies and other little known facts.  What a terrific way to introduce a bit about himself and we can introduce ourselves to him.

November 3

We are honored to welcome Paul Newby, N.C. Supreme Court Justice.  Justice Newby is also currently a Sunday school teacher, youth leader and Elder with Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh.  He is an Eagle Scout, author,adjunct law professor and was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Raleigh for 19 years.  He joins us to focus on the disturbing trend of removing God from the American way of life.
