Attracting Younger Individuals

Recently Dr. Anton Lysy Director of Olcott Institute visited our lodge
and I attended one of his lectures. His presentation was excellent and
was very appreciated by the audience present.

What was noticeable was that almost all present were around
middle age and older and none from the younger generation. I have seen a
similar situation in some other lodges in this part of the country. I do
not know if this is peculiar to this part of the country or it is generally the
case with rest of the lodges.

I think we all should put our heads together and come up with
creative ideas to attract younger generation to Theosophy. If not we can
see a day when most of the current members pass away what may be left
will be a shell sitting on a lot of money and property and the TPH.

Cyberspace being a great equalizer and a place where a lot of
younger generation browse we may be able to take advantage of their
presence in presenting Theosophy and make them interested in it.

Any ideas?
