Lehighton Area Council will hold its bi-monthly networking meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16 at the Beacon 443 Restaurant, Lehighton. The meal will be served at 6 p.m. The featured speaker will be "Ross the Mentalist."

Ross amazes and amuses his audience with his unusual ability to predict their actions, read their thoughts and subliminally persuade his subjects to do as he wishes. Mentalism is the art and skill of using ESP, thought projection, clairvoyance and mind reading to entertain through audience participation.

Ross combines these elements to sustain a highly entertaining, funny and intelligent show. Audience participation is the foundation of the show and plays an essential role in its success. Audiences gasp and laugh as Ross projects his thoughts into a volunteer's.

Ross needs no prior knowledge about anyone. That is why audiences are surprised and astonished. He is very sensitive to his audience's feelings and causes no embarrassment to anyone. He has performed for over 150 audiences in the Pocono area alone. This meeting will prove to be very entertaining and is assured to be enjoyable to all attending. The bi-monthly business meeting will precede Ross's presentation.

The meeting is open to all members of the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce and their guests as well as the public. Bring questions, friends and future CCCC members.
