The Kiwanis Club of Brandon is launching a new initiative to bring interesting and topical speakers to the community through a series of lunchtime presentations at Brandon University.
The lunch-hour speaker presentations are a part of the club’s weekly Tuesday afternoon meetings.
“The public is always invited and it’s always nice to see new faces,” said Brandon University professor and Kiwanis Club member Hamid Mumin.
“We basically meet every Tuesday. Once a month it’s a business meeting, and three times a month we have guest speakers.”
The next speaker will be Etsuko Yasui from the department of applied disaster and emergency studies at BU, who will lead a discussion on the Japan earthquake and tsunami in 2011.
“The main theme will be the ongoing human impact and legacy of the earthquake and tsunami in regards to what has and hasn’t been done to help the people deal with it since then,” Mumin said.
Yasui will speak at noon on Feb. 19 at the Louis Riel room inside BU.
Those planning on attending are encouraged to register via email at email@example.com as well as bring a lunch.
