To celebrate its 25th anniversary season, the Fellowship is offering a variety of programs with the theme “Seeking Common Ground.” The Fellowship was founded in 1993 by a handful of Palm Beach residents who were determined to take aim at intolerance and discrimination.

“This is the third season for Sunday Conversations, our lecture series designed to bring people of all backgrounds together to share common interests,” said Fellowship Chairman John C. Randolph. “The presenters are all top-notch speakers on a variety of historical and cultural topics.”

Light refreshments will be served. Reservations are requested. Visit www.palmbeachfellowship.net or call 561-833-6150. ¦
