Class Friends

Here are some of my friends that may join us if they are available at different times throughout the year to share some of their specialized knowledge with us.

  Note:  These guest speakers are NOT a "Fogarty tradition" and are NOT  annual expected events.  I do my best to offer these special programs but I am at the mercy of volunteers who give their time and expertise and I cannot be certain of their availability or willingness to give me a free program from year to year.
