Let Us Know You’re Coming

Even when the programs are free, we ask that you call ahead to say you plan to attend. We need to know how many to expect in order to have sufficient materials prepared and to reserve the proper-size room for the activity. Also this allows us to call you when a program is cancelled due to low enrollment or instructor illness.  We welcome you to join us, but it is tremendously helpful if you assist us in planning by calling to reserve your space.
