January 2021 Newsletter

Happy New Year!  Thank you to those who donated food to our December food drive.  We were able to provide many bags of groceries to people in need.  We continue to plan events, both in-person and virtual, so please join us in January.  We would love to see more of you all!!

Book Club
Thursday, January 14 at 7:30pm

Happy New Year! Join us virtually for our first Book Club of 2021 where we will raise a toast to the New Year and discuss Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton, a Reese Witherspoon book club pick. After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba’s tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she’ll need the lessons of her grandmother’s past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.
