WOW, October is here already. Fall has officially begun, the leaves are turning beautiful colors and there is a crisp chill in the air. Since we are headed into month 8 of the pandemic we thought we would mix things up a little. We have a JAMMED PACKED calendar in October with a mix of IN PERSON and virtual offerings.

When searching for information about the Coronavirus, COVID-19 please use caution! Unfortunately there are many false sites that contain viruses and malware that can threaten your computer. Many look like real sites. Your best bet is to go directly to the CDC, WHO or your local government page (links below).
For those of you who attend our Memory Cafe events I invite you to learn more about attending a VIRTUAL Memory Cafe through Zoom! There are many options to choose from.
