Our meetings are open and free to the membership with select programs being open, also, to the general public . . . and we have some exciting programs scheduled for the upcoming months. The library has invited us to resume our normal meeting schedule but with possible room changes (see home page for the specifics about this). Unfortunately, these general meetings will not be conducted as “hybrid” gatherings due to some technical issues. We hope to resolve that in the future. In the meantime, in-person meetings begin officially at 6:15 for business; program begins approximately 6:30 pm. Between 6:00 and 6:15 we have a chance to visit and network while video equipment is being set-up. We must end the meeting by 7:45pm. (Note: these hours are adjusted from our earlier schedule due to the library closing time.)

You are welcome to come and join us at the Corona Public Library, Community Room off the foyer (650 S. Main St., at 6th)! Please note: in the event that the health situation changes and quarantining is resumed, the revised plans will appear here as soon as possible. We will adhere to the protocol and regulations set by the library and the community (city, county, state, country).
