Lee Hamilton at 7 p.m. at Minnetrista," reports the Muncie Star Press. Hamilton, a 1952 graduate of DePauw University, served 34 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and co-chaired the 9/11 Commission and Iraq Study Group.

"Lee Hamilton has garnered national attention for demanding that the U.S. Congress restore its practices of civility and respect," says Thomas Perchlik, pastor at Unitarian Universalist Church. "This event will serve as a catalyst for future conversations in Muncie and Delaware County as we work to engage more people in becoming involved in our community."
