May 21, 2010: Annual Light-Hearted Evening with Mark Girard


OFCGJ members and their guests are invited to our annual meeting.  The keynote speaker for this event will be Portland analyst, Mark Girard, speaking on “Creativity, The Red Book, and Play.” Play is the essence of creativity.  Drawing upon stories from his own experience as well as concepts from The Red Book, Dr. Girard will playfully share versions of his own Red Book, and suggest ways for the audience to light-heartedly connect with their own inner Red Book, as a way of encouraging the creative process. Friday, May 21st, 7:00 to 9:30 pm, at the First United Methodist Church, Collins Hall, 1838 SW Jefferson, Portland.  Light refreshments will be served.
