Due to public health concerns related to community spread of coronavirus, the Wednesday Forum will not meet on March 11. This program will be postponed. UUC is looking into the possibility of on-line participation for Wednesday Forum.

Description for the program that had been scheduled for March 11: Jim Sanderson will show a documentary about the UW crew team that won the gold medal at the ’36 Olympic Games in Berlin. This story was the focal point of “The Boys in The Boat,” a few years ago, about a hard-scrabble group of UW students from poor backgrounds that challenged the elites and Facists of the world.
