Antiracism Book Group

Antiracism Book Group
Sunday January 17, 6:30pm on Zoom

Our book this month is an interactive workbook, where you do all the work! Here is a free online copy of this workbook (for individual use only). Yes, this will take some time, but you will be rewarded with a much deeper understanding of the black/white caste system in our lives and in our hearts. AND you will become a better ancestor! The Follen Antiracism Book Group meets to discuss this on Sunday, January 17 at 6:30pm on Zoom. To join, watch the newsletter for the link or email Robin Tartaglia at antiracismbookgroup@follen.org.

Octagon Dinners

It’s a New Year! Help say good-bye (or good riddance!) to 2020 and welcome in 2021. All are welcome to participate – singles, couples, families, newcomers and old-timers. We have two dinners scheduled – one on Sunday, January 24 and the other on Saturday, January 30. These will be potluck dinners via Zoom, and there will be no assignments or pre-dinner prep – just a chance to gather and break bread with new and old friends. You only need to signup on Signup Genius (links in newsletter) and an invite with a link will be sent to you before the dinner. Please contact Steph Chiha at octagon@follen.org if you have any questions or difficulty signing up.

Nutrition and our Emotional and Physical Health during Covid

Join us for a Zoom presentation on January 28 at 7pm by Julie Freeman, RD, nutritional, lifestyle coach and integrative medicine expert.
