FORUM FOR MEN, BOYS TO LOOK AT ROLE OF MALES

Oct. 2, 2001 – "You Da Man" is the title of a forum for men and boys from the age of 12 that will take place Sunday evening at the Walker's By The Sea restaurant on the beach at Lindbergh Bay.
The program is the 2nd annual Men's Forum sponsored by the nondenominational V.I. Disciples of Christ. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. The male half of the public is invited to come out and spend the evening developing "a deeper understanding of the role of men in a changing world," and to think about what kind of a man each wants to become.
Dr. Hollis Liverpool, also known as the famed Trinidadian calypsonian "Mighty Chalkdust," will perform. Door prizes, including a three-month gym membership, will go to the first 20 individuals through the door; prizes will be awarded during a "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" sort of competition; and a Colombian Emeralds watch will go to the winner of a dominoes tournament.
There'll be food, too — barbecue ribs, chicken and fish provided by Glenn Nelthropp and side dished by chef Wendell Walker.
The registration fee is $20 for adults and $10 for students.
Presenters will include Pastor Angel Martinez from Puerto Rico. He has led churches in New York City, Santo Domingo and Puerto Rico, in one case leading a congregation as it grew in membership from 18 to more than 800. A "dynamic, forthright young spitfire," in the words of one of the forum organizers, Mary Ann Dennis, he leads by example and "gets you to think."
Topics to be considered will include "Man for the Future" and "Man for the Family."
"The main event will be held in the restaurant itself, as we'll be featuring the calypsonian, guest speaker Angel Martinez and a video presentation," Pastor Paul Dennis of V.I. Disciples of Christ said. "The barbecue will be an indoor/outdoor event. The dominoes tournament will probably be held indoors."
And lest the ladies feel overlooked, Mary Ann Dennis said, they'll have their day on Nov. 11, when the congregation will host its 3rd annual Women's Day program. This year, she said, it will look at "What Women Really Want."
The V.I. Disciples of Christ is affiliated with the International Churches of Christ. Under the leadership of Pastor Dennis, the congregation meets Sundays at 10 a.m. and Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at its place of worship in Berne's Alley. Anyone wanting additional information about the men's forum is asked to call Pastor Dennis at 774-4459.
