Upcoming Events

Lunch Bunch – Tuesday, January 8 at 12:00pm

WHERE:  43 Waltham St, Lexington

Book Club – Thursday, January 10 at 7:30pm

The book for January will be Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.  Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. It is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.  Please join us at the circle for discussion!

Members are kindly asked to bring a beverage or food to share.
RSVP by Monday, January 7th:  email Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com for location details
