Sunday Series

The Sunday Series in the Mary Jane Stryker Theater will go on hiatus for the summer.  We'll start again in September, with topics ranging from architecture to music, the environment, and, yes, graveyards!  Second Sundays are usually devoted to science, while the fourth Sundays remain history-focused.  Programs begin at 1:30 pm and are always FREE!
