Out of an abundance of caution, it is with regret that we are officially cancelling our July 2020 Coterie events. Everything that we planned for 2020 will be moved to July 2021.
However, we are planning some virtual events for July. More information will posted here as we finalize plans, but we are investigating video conferencing, facebook live events, and video lectures.
Thanks to everyone who is a part of this group. Stay safe and healthy until we can all meet in person again!
Love to all
Donna McCreary, Donna Daniels, and Valerie Gugala
Mark Your calendars!
