Ben Franklin Circle: Frugality
February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Dekalb Public Library has joined a 21st-century community-building initiative inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s “club for mutual improvement,” launched more than 200 years ago.
Ben Franklin Circles are dedicated to exploring the 13 virtues identified by Franklin: Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. The group engages in conversations on what each of these virtues means today on a personal and societal level. This month we will be discussing frugality, of which Franklin’s definition is “Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself: i.e. Waste nothing.”
This program is FREE and open to all ages. No registration is required. Coordinated by Tracy Rogers-Tryba.
