The McConnell Connection

Dear friend of the McConnell Center,

Happy holidays from all of us at the McConnell Center. May peace and joy be yours during this wonderful season and the coming new year. 

We've enjoyed seeing you at our events this year. Our efforts to "Remember American History" have been successful this fall, and we look forward to resuming the public lecture series in the spring.

All the best,

The McConnell Center
