Dr. Quincy Dobbs - Flint Theatre
And Steve Smith – Former
University of Michigan Quarterback
One of the Flint Institute of Music’s most
majestic instruments is the Flint Theatre
Organ, which came from the Capitol Theatre
in Flint, where it provided music for silent
movies in the 1920’s and early 30’s. Hear Dr.
Quincy Dobbs, President of the Flint Theatre
Organ Club, talk about the history of this

Mrs. Nancy Szikszay - Flint
Community Players
And Tara Moreno – Flint Serenity
The Flint Community Players have been very
generous to our speaker program by
providing free gift certificates to their
performances over several decades. Tom
Nobles represented them so very well and
came to our monthly programs to hand out the
free tickets to our seniors. He was an
outstanding man who enjoyed Friday’s at
Applewood. Tom’s daughter, Mrs. Nancy
Szikszay, has continued to see to it that our
seniors are still receiving these gift
certificates and she will speak about the
Players and the role her parents (Tom & Bea)
played in that great organization.
Tara Moreno, Founder and Executive
Director of the Serenity House of Flint, saw a
need for holistic medicine in the current
recovery model, after she spent five years
using conventional recovery methods,
including therapists, doctors, and 12-step
meetings. When Ms. Moreno found holistic
medicine, her overall wellness skyrocketed.
Once on a plethora of medication, she was
able to stop the use altogether with nutrition,
energy medicine (Reiki), acupuncture,
meditation, breathing exercises, and yoga. As
the use of prescription medications increases
exponentially, the Serenity House of Flint’s
mission is to inform the public on holistic
ways to heal from addiction and other

Steve Kramer – Michigan State Police –
Human Trafficking
Human Trafficking is modern-day slavery.
Force, fraud, and coercion are methods used
to control young people to elicit commercial
sexual acts, labor or service. Sex Trafficking is
conducted through brothels, escort services,
fake massage businesses, and strip clubs.
Human trafficking takes place in all 50 states
and Washington D.C. It is a highly lucrative
trade. Here in Michigan, the National Human
Trafficking Resource Center states that as of
June 30, 2015 they had received 290 calls and
81 human trafficking case reports for 2015
alone. Since 2007 there have been 1,969 calls
and 483 cases in Michigan. A report
recently came out that said Michigan is #2 in
the nation for Human Trafficking. Hear what
Mr. Kramer has to say about the involvement
of the Michigan State Police with this
horrendous problem.

January 20, 2017
Dr. Mike Heberling – Global Warming
– A Contrarian Viewpoint
And Warren Henson – U.S. Marshall
There has been a barrage of gloom and doom
associated with Global Warming, also known
as Climate Change. The news media,
environmentalists, and politicians tell us that
this is the most pressing issue we are facing. If
this is such an absolute certainty, why does it
seem necessary to shut down the debate on the
subject? This presentation will address
GlobalWarming/Climate Change from a
perspective that is rarely heard, or allowed.
Warren Henson will be speaking about the
areas that the U.S. Marshall Program focuses
on. Learn about what they do, what training is
required to become a U.S. Marshall, and
involvements that he thinks would be of
interest to us.

Eileen Button – The Waiting Place
We all spend precious time just waiting. We
wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool
circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and
for our children to be born. We even wait to
die. While we work hard at this business of
living, life can sometimes feel like one very
long, boring meeting. Even today, with instant
gratification at our techno-laced fingertips, we
cannot escape The Waiting Place. Somehow, in
between our texting and tweeting, and living
and dying we end up there again, and again.
Eileen will discuss her new perspectives on
The Waiting Place and will tell of the beauty
and humor that she has found hiding in its
dusty corners.
March 17, 2017
Lisa Olney – The Detroit V.A. Health
Care System
Lisa is a public affairs officer, who will discuss
what the Detroit V.A. system does for our
Veterans and the benefits available to them and
their families. Hear about the V.A. strengths,
weaknesses, and efforts to improve services to
this incredibly deserving group of people who
have served the United States so very well.
