Pre-Lectures Scoops. Jeff and I love being a part of so very many good things but the Super Bowl of events for us is the Freed-Hardeman Lectures. It is not the largest by any means of events for us each year, but because of dad and the times we got to spend there with him and that we get to spend with each other that week it holds a very special place in our lives. So with Lectures staring right at us, here are the latest Scoops.
