You can stay in Garrett County this evening and still experience another “world” by attending a lecture on Benazir Bhutto, the first female Prime Minister of Pakistan. The Chautauqua-style lecture, from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm, will be given by local entrepreneur Kam Gillespie, former employee at the World Bank and currently owner of Haley Farm in Oakland.
You have two choices for something a bit different this evening and they are both from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. There’s an Acoustic Rock Jam at MoonShadow (bring your instrument and join-in or just listen) and Team Trivia at the Greene Turtle (six rounds open to all). Both establishments have nice brews and nice eats too.
Don’t forget the Power of Possibilities (POP) Summit is this Thursday at the college. Sarah and I founded POP in 2014 and Jodi McClintock has been running it the past couple of years.

I will be there. Call 301.387.3069 to register.
