Some Highlights from our Current Newsletter
Globally, the response to the pandemic has been of change and adapting. Our newsletter is no exception. Notices about live dances, music sessions and fundraisers have been replaced in our newsletter with virtual opportunities. But the bulk of this newsletter includes the reflections, thoughts, resources and even the words of a song submitted by branch officers and board members offered in support of and in gratitude for you, our members.
The next newsletter will be the “Summer Edition” and we invite you, our members, to share your stories with us. Found a great music/dance resource? Heard from a old friend of CCE? Let us know by emailing Barbara Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org
