A very warm thank you to everyone who joined us for our 8th Annual Columbia Dialogue Dinner on April 19, 2016 at the Capital City Club. Billie Jean Shaw warmed the audience with her kind words of coming together for peace. Dr. Joan T.A. Gabel, University of South Carolina Provost was the Keynote speaker for the evening and she gave a wonderful and insightful speech which included the Carolina Creed. We had a great time and it was wonderful to gather with our guests to celebrate our diversities.
Lastly the audience was able to enjoy the work of Master Calligrapher Aydin Cayir from Turkey. His calligraphy work is world renowned and all had an opportunity to take home a piece of it for themselves.
Theme of the dinner: "Dialogue Across Differences Through Restorative Healing And Community Action"
