On Saturday, March 4, a major snow day, we had an amazing International Café call with 36 people! One of the benefits of Zoom and a positive outgrowth of the pandemic.  If you can get an internet connection, you can get Zoom. And folks were able to participate from Brazil and Columbia as well as the USA.

It is posted on our committee’s FaceBook page.  (Feel free to share it!!)
