General Meetings (Programs)


To Newcomers members!

I am the Vice President for Programs for 2020-2021 and Debra Cormier is the Assistant VP for Programs.

Monthly programs are planned at each business meeting, the second Thursday of each month from September through June.  This is such a difficult time with restrictions and concerns about Covid-19.  For that reason, we have planned the monthly programs that follow but please know that there may be some cancellations while other programs may be conducted using ZOOM.  

We look forward to the time when we can meet face-to-face and we hope that will be as soon as our first meeting in September.   The monthly newsletters will provide you with updated program information.  Also, the website will provide updates on any program changes.
