To the Editor:

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning's winter season is in full swing and recently we presented a program that was in every sense of the word a success. Derek Boothby, who served in the United Nations and has worked at various posts around the world, gave a talk entitled "Stumbling in War - Lessons from World War I." The lecture accompanied by slide images was part history and part current events. Much thanks goes to him for preparing and presenting a very interesting, well-organized and timely topic. We are very fortunate to have someone with the depth of knowledge of history and international relations in our community.

I would also like to thank several people and institutions for their help in making this event such a success. To Burr and Burton Academy for once again providing the Hunter Seminar Room and necessary audio-visual technology for this talk. To GNAT-TV for videotaping and editing the program. To my assistant Karen Dreiblatt for her help in the many aspects of putting on an event like this. To Maureen Cullen for her guidance and assistance before, during and after the program. And to the GMA Board of Directors for their support of this program and many others.

Most important, I'd like to thank everyone who attended the lecture. We had a standing room only crowd, who by all accounts enjoyed the presentation.

Our winter season is not over and I hope the community will visit our website greenmtnacademy.org and peruse our catalog for more interesting and upcoming programs.
