Upcoming Events

Kathy is scheduling both in-person and online programs -- drop us an email and let's get your organization on the calendar!!  With the arrival of vaccines, Kathy is returning to in-person programming in August.  Why not go ahead and schedule a program for fall; we can always switch from in-person to virtual, or visa versa.
