Annual Poetry Service
David Lally and George Lally

How does poetry inspire us and invite us to examine ourselves in the world in which we live? Members and friends are invited to bring and share poems, either their own or those written by others that they admire. Jim Kern will provide the music with a special contribution from Willie Caldwell.
