Leader – Joan Cavanagh
We are grateful for the outside activity group leaders who have been so flexible and creative in the past year and kept their groups going during Covid, via Zoom, conference calls, and outside meetings, providing much appreciated company to so many of us during this period of isolation.
Please sign up for as many activities as you are interested in by contacting each group leader directly through emails provided below.
