Come listen to Dr. Jim Zimbelman, planetary geologist for the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), as he analyzes the latest findings from NASA Rover Missions to Mars. For more than 28 years, Dr. Zimbelman has been with the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum (NASM), where he has been involved in the analysis of spacecraft imaging and geophysical data of the Earth, terrestrial planets, and the geologic mapping of Mars and Venus. Dr. Zimbelman is a returning Forum speaker and is excited to be back again.

Kennedy Center Morning Coffee Concert – Friday, February 23

Due to the cancellation of our February Forum we were unable to make this month's Kennedy Center tickets available for purchase as previously announced. A few tickets remain for this Friday, February 23 @11:30am at the Kennedy Center==>KC Morning Coffee Concert [11:30am-1:00pm] featuring conductor Marek Janowski leading Bruch's electrifying First Violin Concerto; and the NSO debut of Stefan Jackiw. This program also includes Brahms's Beethoven-influenced Symphony No 1.

LLI/NOVA has discounted (25%) orchestra tickets @$33.00. Carpool to the Kennedy Center or Metro to Foggy Bottom and board the free Kennedy Center Red Bus. Contact Anna Dixon if interested.

Community Outreach

Our March donations of non-perishable food items will be delivered to Ecumenical Community Helping Others (ECHO). Serving our neediest neighbors in Springfield and Burke, ECHO relies on individual donations as well as large food drives held by faith groups, community organizations, and

schools to stock its pantry shelves. Your donations to this all-volunteer charity are needed and very much appreciated!

Food items in short supply at this time include:
spaghetti sauce, condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayo), Jello and pudding mixes, pancake syrup, tea and coffee, juice (large cans or bottles), canned tomatoes, canned meats, and jelly (grape or strawberry).

Anna Dixon will deliver our donations this month. Thanks Anna! And thanks in advance for your generosity should you decide to donate.


Remember, the new garage parking procedures will be in effect for the March Forum. Pay in advance at the kiosk, including a new one now on the 3rd floor, or use the smart phone app (Passport).
