The summer of 1914 sparked more than just a war; it was the signal for the end of a dream, of a united, peaceful Europe. The young men who went enthusiastically off to war in that summer would later be called a 'lost generation' of veterans and survivors, lurching into depression and another world war. Yet that summer of 1914 is shrouded in confusion. How did the war begin? What were the events that led up to it? How did it get out of control so violently, so quickly, and so fatally?

To mark the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI today, July 28, 1914, David Koch, Assistant Professor of History at Housatonic Community College, focuses on the major powers, players, and events that brought on war in July and August,1914. Appropriate for all ages. Refreshments will be served. Reservations required and begin June 30th.

Do other organizations get more publicity and coverage than yours? Were you pushed into the role of Publicity Chair and have little experience dealing with media? Are you frustrated with not knowing what else your club can do to get some publicity? This workshop is for you.

Carol Banner, a former Dir. of Communications for a regional CT Chapter of the American Red Cross, knows what you’re up against. She supplied releases to 17 newspapers and media outlets in 10 CT towns on a weekly basis. Now, as the publisher and editor of Monroe’s only online magazine, EyeOnMonroe.com with over 22,000 readers, she receives the publicity releases from organizations like yours.

This is not a writing workshop so much as a strategy session. Participants will learn the secrets and tricks of in-the-trenches public relations professionals. The Workshop is limited to 14 people. Only one representative from an organization will be accepted. Participants are asked to bring information (not necessarily a written release) on their organization’s next event.  Registration is required and begins June 29th.
