Cultivate Curiosity and Wonder

There have been several attempts to reach all 138 of us who graduated from the CLSC in 2016 but they have been by email. Knowing that there may have been some reason you did not receive any of those requests for information from you we are sending this request by mail. IF you want to have continued contact with the CLSC (Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle) and the Alumni Association of the CLSC please use the form below.

We are planning to create, and make available for order, class t-shirts and polo-style shirts to wear on Recognition Day next year (August 8, 2018).
