Until further notice, in-person meetings are canceled! Instead, we’ll meet via teleconference.

Next meeting: Tuesday, January 18, 7pm, via Zoom. For instructions on joining the teleconference via Zoom, click here.

Current projection is that the Red Cross will not be available to outside groups before January 2022. If the Red Cross becomes open to outside groups, we will meet in-person with a continued Zoom option for those unable to physically attend.
