The first of the day's five sessions, begins at 9:00
A.M. with coffee and doughnuts, as the participants register,
visit together and gather for the welcoming address.
A brief presentation on the new world of the Bicentennial
Era introduces Session Two the morning workshop at 10:00 A.M.
In the workshop the participants meet in small groups, identify
the economic, political and cultural issues and analyze the foundational
challenges to our nation as we enter the Bicentennial Era.
Session three of the Town Meeting is a festive noontime
interlude. As the participants enjoy an informal lunch at 12:30
P.M., special guests and community leaders are received, and an
array of local entertainment and group singing creates a powerful
Session four of the Town Meeting is introduced by
a brief presentation at 1:30 P.M. on the new human and the American
citizen. At 2:00 P.M. the afternoon work shop engages in participants,
meeting in small groups, in writing twelve to twenty practical
practical proposals for meeting the challenges indentified in
the morning workshop. One group creates a story, song and symbol
for America's Bicentennial Era.
Session five, beginning at 4:00 P.M. concludes the day with a plenary in which the workshop groups report on the day's accomplishments. At 5:00 P.M. the Town Meeting adjourns. Each participant receives a document holding the group's proposals for the future, a new story of the community's role in American history, and a renewed sense of the American revolutionary spirit.
The Town Meeting '76 is the celebration of the 200th
anniversary of the American Revolution through a day long community
gathering aimed at reforming the local consensus on the future
direction of the nation. While the day's activity is structured,
the atmosphere is informal. Beginning at 9:00 A.M. with coffee
and doughnuts the day includes two brief talks on the Bicentennial
and the American citizen, two group workshop sessions, a celebrative
lunch, and a closing plenary reporting session. At 5:00 P.M. the
community residents return home with a document holding their
proposals for the future, a new story, and a renewed sense of
the American revolutionary spirit.
A key dimension of the drama of the Town Meeting
is the two brief contextual talks set at the beginning of the
morning and the afternoon sessions. The first, on the new world
of the Bicentennial Era, articulates the new situation we find
ourselves in as we enter the next 200 years. The second on the
new human and the American citizen, delineates the issues, responsibilities
and possibilities given to us as citizens in this new era.
The workshops are the highlights of the Town Meeting.
In two sessions of two hours each, the gathered representatives
of the community work in four groups, first to discern the underlying
challenges facing our nation, and secondly to create practical
proposals and a story to give direction to our nation as it enters
the Bicentennial Era.
The Town Meeting begins and ends as a celebrative
gathering of the community in a plenary session. Opening is informal
with coffee and rolls, informal conversation, and visiting. This
is followed by community singing, a conversation, and a talk.
The closing plenary centers around group reports and a
presentation of the work of the day. It is cast in a highly celebrative
mood and marks the dramatic close of the day.
Punctuating the Town Meeting at its center is the lunch time interlude. Around a sumptuous buffet lunch,
coordinated array of local entertainers (professional and amateur, planned, and spontaneous) provides dis-
continuous celebration time for the community. Dancing,
music, comedy, and community singing blend into a powerful happening
in the middle of the day.

in this Bicentennial Era. It demonstrates the presence of this
new sociological situation in our everyday lives in local situations
as well as pointing to the broad shifts occurring across the globe.
Further, it articulates the resurgent posture emerging in people
today relative to living in this new world, and affirms the appropriateness
of the Bicentennial Era as an opportunity and the Town Meeting
as a vehicle for responding to this new world.

the sense of crisis in us all as a sociological rather than psychological
reality. It demonstrates that in the heat of engagement in this
complex new world of ours a rebirth of human spirit or drive is
occurring that is causing us to recover in a profound way the
basics of human life. Finally, the lecture probes the practical
style of this new human for the next 200 years.
