"Many thanks for the generosity of those who enable us to enjoy lectures.  What a wonderful idea to dispense information in such a social setting.  How pleasant to be able to meet like minded souls who have an opinion, open minds and an alert intellect.  No preaching or partisanship.  Just well-prepared, informative lectures from  specialists in their field with a genteel question and answer time to follow. When able, I am always delighted to be able to attend.  Please thank your sponsors most sincerely on my behalf."
