Just a reminder, if you’re coming to the Covid Booster clinic here next Tuesday, November 23, bring your vaccination card-they’ll need to update it, your insurance cards and your patience. Questions? 413-458-8250.

Our Balance and Strength class instructor, Jane J will be out from December 15th into the beginning of January -she will be having hip surgery a month from now. We’ll be plugging holes in the schedule with other activities for a couple weeks until she returns. Check the calendar for December for updates.

We would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone to be respectful of other people’s feelings. We want this to be a safe space for everybody.  All who come here should feel welcome to participate in activities and not be judged. Please be mindful of how you express yourself to your neighbors. We have always strived to create an inclusive environment.
