Ahead of this month’s Women’s Group seminar, Educating Your Child in a Non-Native Language, a number of Members in the know discuss the challenges and rewards of raising bilingual children.
Eight-year-old Sophie Leviton puts a spoonful of Rainbow Café peanut butter ice cream in her mouth and ponders the question. As a smile spreads across her face, the young Member replies that the best thing about being bilingual is “being able to talk to different people.”
Member Darshaun Nadeau on the thrills and freedom of taking to the skies.
Darshaun Nadeau visited the Mojave Air and Space Port in Southern California on a whim during a 1987 family vacation. On display was the Rutan Model 76 Voyager, the first aircraft to fly around the world without refueling in 1986.
Club Governor Michael Benner heads to Chiba each September for two colorful days of semi-naked ritual.
Every year, Michael Benner strips to the waist and surges neck-deep into the heaving waves of the Pacific Ocean, hefting a god high above his shoulders.
Member Thorsten Poehl explains how hunting has afforded him a greater appreciation for the natural world.
When I was a boy, I enjoyed hiking and sleeping in the forest and becoming one with nature. Then I became very much a city person because my profession is management. I always enjoyed the opportunity to go back to nature, and I found different ways to do that: hiking or mountain biking in the Alps in Europe.
