MEETINGS 2020 - 2021

We meet on the third Wednesday of the month, September through May. Please check the home page for notice of any cancellation. 

Temporarily, monthly meetings will be held online, via Zoom. Given the current safety considerations due to Covid-19, research is well underway for a meeting space that will be safe for everyone.

Since we are meeting virtually, we are working on ways to bring the Art of the Month program back to our members. Stay tuned for news.
