The Wichita Pachyderm Club has announced its list of speakers for the next month or so. The speakers include political candidates, government officials, and businessmen.
Everyone is welcome to attend Wichita Pachyderm Club meetings. The meetings are Fridays at noon, although it is best to arrive perhaps 15 minutes early to get your lunch from the buffet before the program starts. The location is the Wichita Petroleum Club, on the ninth floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway (north side of Douglas between Topeka and Broadway) in Wichita (click for a map and directions).
The program costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch including salad, soup, two main dishes, and ice tea and coffee.
Here are the speakers for the near future.
