Tuesday Nights Together summer program

Sun Lakes United Methodist Church will again host a series of free summer programs on Tuesday evenings in July. Topics vary from light and entertaining to more serious and important to our community. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.

Each Tuesday event will be held at 6:30 p.m. in Lindsay Hall at Sun Lakes UMC. The programs will last an hour or so, and no reservations are required. Just mark your calendar and plan to come!

Here is the July lineup:

July 7 – The Sand Creek Massacre – Presenter Barbara Sutteer is a member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. She will discuss the event that bears testimony to one of the most barbaric atrocities committed in the American West.

July 21 – Caves: A Unique and Fragile Environment – Presenter Bill Fitzpatrick was raised in the gold-mining culture of northern California. A photographer and world traveler, Bill has been an avid spelunker for over 50 years.

July 28 – Casa Grande National Monument – 30 minutes away from Sun Lakes lie the protected ruins of multiple structures built by Native American peoples of the Hohokam period. These ancient peoples populated the Gila River region as far back to the early 13th century. Dr. Richard Fox, a retired physician who now volunteers at the Casa Grande National Monument will discuss this local treasure.
