A Well Appointed Table: Dining at the Turn of the Century It has been said that dining is the privilege of civilization. A person’s standing in turn-of-the century society could be measured by the way they took their meals. This presentation takes a look at the ritual act of eating across cultures while paying special focus to America’s Gilded Age – a time when dining reached a pinnacle of refinement. Please bring a Thanksgiving style dish to share with the group, along with the YMCA providing the turkey.

Time: 11:00 – 12:00 (meal begins after lecture)
Fee: $5/person to cover the presentation
