Community Civility

Dr. P.M. Forni, a recognized expert and author on the subject of civil behavior in society, will talk about the principles outlined in his books which are the basis for the UW-Oshkosh conference, “Civility in Everyday Life,” held Feb. 22-24. Dr. Forni is the author of "Choosing Civility: The Twenty-five Rules of Considerate Conduct" and "The Civility Solution: What to Do When People Are Rude."

He will appear at the Oshkosh Public Library at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24.

Immediately following Forni, there will be a panel discussion, "Be a Good Sport: Civility On and Off the Field."

A panel of local coaches, sports journalists and youth sports coordinators answer questions and share their experiences related to sportsmanship on the field, on the sidelines and in the stands.

Panelists include:
Mike Woods – Appleton Post-Crescent
Lester Millette – Senior Youth & Family Director, Oshkosh YMCA
Chris Kujawa – Head Football Coach, Oshkosh North High School
Chris Guido – President, Oshkosh Youth Soccer Club
Chris Mehring, Director of media relations and radio broadcaster, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers
