So that we may honor all those who have lost their lives in defense of the United States, the Belmont Media Center will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 27. We will return to normal business hours on Tuesday.
Belmont Media Center will be covering several important government meetings throughout the week. Due to schedule overlaps, we had to spread out the live cablecasts of some of these meetings to channel 96 (Comcast) and 30 (Verizon).

In the third lecture of his series, Geoffrey Brahmer discusses "In Remembrance: The Armenian Genocide." This will be a powerful presentation that utilizes history, photographs and diaries/memoirs. The topic is still a controversial subject in the world today, so Mr. Brahmer will asks some of the most fundamental questions of humanity.
