    If I ordered tickets and haven’t picked them up yet, are they still available? Thanks.

    Kudos to Lafayette! This is an amazing set of speakers. I am sure my sister who is deeply involved in animal rights causes/media would love to hear Jane Goodall’s address. I would like to attend all of them, but hopefully at least that given by Jimmy Carter. I just read some research where Berry Gordy (of Motown fame) is distantly related to Jimmy Carter’s mother (Miss Lillian/Bessie Lillian Gordy). Wow! I love Jimmy Carter; he is a great man, giving back to the world through love and example.
