10:00 - 11:30 a.m. (From 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. there will be a social Meet & Greet) KPCH, THE BANQUET ROOM WELCOME ALL RESIDENTS OF KINGS POINT AND SUN CITY CENTER: PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION BY Philip Coates TOPIC HIGHLIGHTS History is often taught badly and boringly. It is presented as just memorizing a long list of names and dates and kings and legislation, as if the changes of empires and regimes, of politics and economics were all that mattered. To show this is very much not the case, I will discuss three different types of events which have fundamentally and permanently shaped our world. One is military, taken from battles and wars. Another is from the arts and culture. The third is a revolution in laws and how people are governed which continues to have impact on how people live and think: <> Military --- The battle of Marathon (halting the Persian invasion of Greece and conquest of Europe) <> Art and Culture --- The Renaissance rediscovery of classical ideals in painting, sculpture, architecture, and philosophy -  Government - The American political system centered around the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution I will explain why each of these have changed our world deeply, made it it very different from what it would have otherwise been. Bio of Presenter: Phil is a graduate of Brown with a Master's from Michigan. He has extensive teaching experience -- in the business world, as a corporate trainer at Hewlett-Packard, as a tutor, and in the classroom at multiple levels. Phil is also a writer and a public speaker. He has taught, done workshops, or done research in a wide range of subjects over the years.

7:00 p.m. at The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West Tripp has performed at UMCSCC twice before, but under different settings. In July 2018 he came to accompany the great Gospel singer, Larry Ford. And in January, 2015 he performed as one half of the popular Gospel duo, Kaptivating Keyboards,  a “dueling pianos” type of act. Alan Curtis Tripp is an astonishingly gifted pianist, who also composes and arranges music. He overcame  a childhood of difficult health challenges that almost took his young life to accomplish much to this point in his life. In 2015 he conducted a bicycle charity tour by riding his bike 3,000 miles across the United States for Kids Alive International, performing piano concerts along the way. He embraces many genres of music including Jazz, Gospel, Classical, Country, Patriotic and Latin, and plays all of them with flair. A native of Clearwater, he began studying piano at the age of nine. By the age of 14 he was presenting full piano concerts and recitals. He has performed in Mexico, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Spain, Ireland, Morroco and almost all 50 states in the USA.  Tripp may be as zany and engaging as he is musically gifted. His stories are always entertaining, and his view of the world can be different, yet insightful. It is possible that during the concert, you will laugh, cry and be amazed at his talent….maybe all even on the same song! Tripp states simply, “I want to share the joy I have that God has given me through the gift of music. I believe music can heal, encourage, and inspire others and I count is as a privilege to be able to combine my love for humor and several styles of music to do just that.”

CAHT in honor of National Human Trafficking month will be showing the award-winning PBS documentary, “Sex Trafficking in America.” followed by a presentation on local human trafficking activities and concerns from Deputy Jeffery E. Mercy Jr, Hillsborough County Sherriff’s Office.  The documentary explores two and half years of working with young trafficked women and one dedicated police unit committed to rooting out this modern-day form of slavery.  What is revealed is a crime that’s often hidden in plain sight and growing – due in part to the social media that traffickers use to lure young vulnerable girls and teens.  The documentary shares the unique challenges of reporting on sexual exploitation, exploring why minors are vulnerable to sex trafficking and explains how social medias has shaped both the practice of sex trafficking and the fight against it. January’s special meeting is free and CAHT invites our community to learn more about the dangers of domestic abuse (the vulnerable root of human trafficking scenarios). “Traffickers use the social media to recruit lonely, depressed, and rejected kids and teens who are looking for attention and a perceived better life”, says Annie Garrison, CAHT president. “This documentary is a real eye-opener based on factual information and interviews with survivors.” Deputy Jeffery Merry will also share what is going on in the south share area with human trafficking and reported domestic violence issues.  January’s general meeting is NOT held at United Methodist Church but will be held on Monday, January 27.

They’ve performed with such greats as Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman, Exile, Ray Charles, Lee Greenwood and American Idol finalists. But this special show is all about the music of John Denver, Tom’s idol and mentor. Tom explains, “It all started with a Sears Silverstone guitar and the music of John Denver”. From the spirited, Thank God I’m a Country Boy to the sweet and tender, Annie’s Song to the soaring vocals of Calypso, Back Home Again is sure to evoke the spirit and memories of John Denver, one of America’s most beloved and popular singers/songwriters of the 20th century.   Tickets are on sale for $10 at the church’s office, 1210 Del Webb Blvd West.
