Dunbar and John Muir – A Conversation
Wednesday 24
th
October 2012 at 7.00pmBleachingfield Community Centre, Dunbar
 
This event has been inspired by the
Conversations
that have been held over the past couple of years in Dunbar Library. The idea for these
Conversations
camefrom Friends member Steve Tossell and they have been instrumental inengaging the public with various topics of interest to the Dunbar community – and beyond.The intention of the
 Dunbar and John Muir 
‘conversation’ is to encourage adiscussion about John Muir’s connection to Dunbar and to generate ideas thatFriends, and others, can incorporate into future plans that support, and promote, Muir’s legacy.Members of Friends are encouraged to participate, and to invite others to comealong as this is a public event open to non-members and the more the merrier.It will be an opportunity for everyone to have their say on the future of Friendsand to contribute to the aims and objectives of the charity.The
Conversation
will be chaired by Kilvert Croft and contributions will bemade by Robert Russel (Friends), Heather Hackett (Dunbar Primary School),Richard Woof (or A N Other, Dunbar Grammar School), A N Other (JohnMuir Birthplace) plus, of course, audience participation.
