The Friends of the Bluff is hosting its second Bluff Talks at the Montvale Event Center from 7 to 9 p.m. The event costs $10. All proceeds go to the Friends of the Bluff.
“Bluff Talks is all about stirring up a deeper sense of place,” said Marit Fischer, Friends of the Bluff board member in a news release. “This sense is a human emotional experience that gives meaning to a location. It’s what makes someplace different from another in our minds and it gives us reason to care. Bluff Talks makes the High Drive Bluff Park personal by sharing stories from members of our community who are invested in it for their own reasons.”
