What's the best reason to attend our UN Day Luncheon next Saturday (October 26) in Edmond?
I think it's the people.
I've often said that you won't find a better group of folks anywhere in our state.
Here's how Dorothy Messenger describes her appreciation for the people of our chapter of the UN Association:
"There are many things I like about being a member of our chapter. I appreciate the fact that its membership includes persons of many ethnic backgrounds and persons of different religious faiths. The membership is inter-generational and represents a variety of vocations and opinions.
"I’m grateful that the UNA-USA affords me an opportunity to become better informed about the activities of the United Nations and the whole world scene. It’s good to be a part of an organization where all the members obviously share a love of our nation and of the world and want to have a part in helping our nation to live up to its highest ideals."
(You can read Dorothy's complete message, "The Long View," on our blog).
I hope you'll choose to enjoy a good meal and great company with us next Saturday, October 26th.

But, hurry ... The registration book is scheduled to close on Monday.
Here's another thought from Dorothy:
"Being a member of the UNA-USA is extremely important to me because it makes me feel I am part of a huge, centuries-old movement of humankind, a movement of people who are convinced that there are better ways than war for settling national disputes."
I hope to see you next Saturday at UCO in Edmond!
