Suzie Metz, co-chair of the Program Coordination committee, writes:
When I moved up to Northampton and joined FCLIR in a snowy March, 2022, it was during COVID, and no welcoming gathering for new members was held… the classes I chose and the online friendships I made were crucial links to creating a new life up here. This fall our class on Motown met in person at the new Annex, with some joining via hybrid, and the in-person dynamic was such a cheerfully welcomed change.
So if you are a new member, or perhaps a member who has so far experienced FCLIR only through Zoom, please join us for an in-person Welcoming Coffee at the Amherst Senior Center on the afternoon of February 13. We’ll introduce ourselves to each other, as well as our officers, who will be on hand to offer their insights and answer any questions you may have about our organization.
