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.
yberspace 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? MK Ramadoss >

Ideas no ... but would it help to know that I am 31 years old? Does that
qualify as the younger generation? There may be more of us than you think
particularly with the coming of the new Millenium.
