As an act of environmentalism and to de-clutter one's wardrobe, fill a bag of old, unused or unwanted clothing over Thanksgiving Break. Trade an old sweater for a more desirable one or trade an expensive item for 1 or more items that seem equivalent in quality. The trade will function based on the honors system. Bring along your old shoes, t-shirts, pants, accessories, etc. in exchange for something more suiting and fresh. All are welcome!

Few events in history have been so seemingly clear cut as thirteen days in October of 1962. The world was on the brink of nuclear destruction as the United States and the Soviet Union stood 'eyeball to eyeball' waiting for the other to blink. An imaginary line had been drawn 15 miles off Cuba and the world watched on television as four Soviet ships transporting missiles plowed through the water escorted by a submerged nuclear sub. At the last moment they turned back. But few realized that another crisis was looming: "Black Saturday October 27" when a gut churning series of violent events pushed us back to the edge. These talks will use images, diaries, and the book by Michael Dobbs, "One Minute to Midnight."
