We’re all doing our best to “keep calm and carry on” during these extraordinary times. The most important thing for you to know is, we’re still here, we’re still functioning, we’re still responding to members and friends of the chapter.

And we've been thrilled to reconnect with Sisters who live too far away to come to meetings (even in the Before Times)! What a great, warm and social way to stay close while physically distancing.
