Executive Director’s Message

September 2023

Summer is almost over and as I reflect back, it has been a very successful one. My thanks to everyone who participated in our programs and were so generous in support of our mission.

The fall season will be a busy one with wide-ranging educational and entertaining programs. Our lectures will cover serious topics, and also cultural and historical ones. Workshops will be fun and practical. We’re bringing back classes in the culinary series and also Great Art on Screen documentaries.

Keep checking our website for updates. We are constantly developing programs and adding them to the schedule.
