Past Programs

The Forum

The Fellowship Forum was founded to create a group whose purpose would be simply to meet at a weekly luncheon and discuss matters of general interest. Active membership is limited in number.

Members or guest speakers present a broad diversity of subjects. Speakers must avoid advocating partisan political positions or denominational religious doctrine. A brief period for questions or comments customarily concludes the meeting.

Forum History Archive

A history of the Fellowship Forum, to the extent that records still exist to describe it, has been summarized and archived on this website.

A single History Page serves as an overview with links to the details.

Please enjoy learning more about our past.
