More from MTAV....

Emory and Henry College is a small college located in Southwest Virginia and has ties to the United Methodist Church.  When I attended, the enrollment was around 700.  These days it is near 1,000.

Thursday was the day I forgot to bring the camera with me as we headed out for the day's activities.  We enjoyed a talk by an Economics professor after breakfast.  This is the fourth year she has spoken with us, and it is always enjoyable.

The mid-day program was given by Patsi Barnes Trollinger on her picks for great children's literature.  She also introduced us to her new book, "Thrill in the 'Ville."  Another book she has written is "Perfect Timing."

As Wednesday's program was on moonshine, it seemed appropriate to have a presentation on prohibition on Thursday evening by a representative from the Appalachian School of Law.

Those of us who attend MTAV are housed in a couple of small college dorms, and our meals are prepared by the college meal service.  This year, we "spilled over" the dorms, and an "annex" was added.  I featured a picture of that in the post a couple of days ago.

There is still more about last week.  That will continue in the next post.

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.

  2. It's good to know that this college is thriving, while some others seem to be struggling. That speaks well of the alumni and supporters of this fine institution. You are one of those active alumni, and I'm sure you've enjoyed staying in touch with many of your classmates from those decades ago!
