(From the flyer) "What if we could get past differences, and common ground and plant
some great ideas? We’re going to try it. JOIN US!"

on issues of governance, religion, race, the environment, economic development,
education and healthcare strengthens social connection and allows us to draw on
diverse skill sets to address common challenges. Speakers will present successful
projects and participants will engage in workshops both fun and disarming to find new
tools." March 28-30, Spruce Street United Methodist Church, Morgantown, with a
