Hi CM community! We’ll be virtual again this month!

We will be coming together via Zoom. Look for e-mails the night before and morning of the event for link. If you’re new to Zoom, you’ll want to sign up for a free account ahead of time.

And don’t worry, you’ll join on mute with your video off, but we hope you’ll turn that cam on and show us your smiling faces!

See you soon for virtual coffee and high-fives!
