When will we return to in person classes? I honestly do not know. We will continue biweekly Zoom meetings in November and December 2021.  We will reassess the situation over the holidays.

You won’t want to miss our final Zoom class of 2021 on Friday Dec 17-it will be a Zoom Holiday Party! Details will arrive in your December 13 invitation.

If all goes well, in person classes could resume in our classroom as early as Friday January 7, 2022. 

I will update you as developments warrant.
