June speaker - Azby Brown on Living Green in Edo

Dear friends and members of the Unitarian fellowship,
At our May meeting we had an interesting talk with great visuals presented by fellowship member, Chuck Olson, on the topic of "Uncertainty". He anchored his philosphical exploration with his story of growing up in the desert, with casinos and open air nuclear testing, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Next meeting:
June 13th, International House 3:00-5:00

Our speaker will be Azby Brown, originally from Louisiana with degrees from Yale and Todai, architect.
He is now director of the Future Design Institute (field of Media Informatics) , at Kanazawa Institute of Technology.
He is also the author of a new book (which he illustrated) from Kodansha, "Just Enough: Lessons in Living Green from Traditional Japan".
His topic will be: ' The Edo approach to acheiving sustainability.'

The September fellowship meeting (Sept 12) WILL BE AT International House.
Our tentative speaker is Stan Yukevich, fellowship member.

Peggy Kanada, moderator

PS Because our new Unitarian member Miram Levering will be giving a lecture on Buddhism on July 11th (all interested are invited), the date for Peggy's OPEN HOUSE and Pot Luck has been changed to JULY 4TH (Sunday).
Please let me know if that date is NOT good for you.
Details about the Pot Luck will follow once the date is reconfirmed.
