Calendar 2017 – 2018

In recognition of our 36th year, our theme for the year is Thirty-Six!

Unless stated otherwise, all general meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to June, at 7:30 p.m.  Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda, 100 Elder Street, usually upstairs, in the Arback Hall (elevator accessible).

A small group of members, The Guildees, meets every Tuesday afternoon in individual homes on a rotating basis to work on either group or individual projects.  All members are invited to join the Guildees.
