  1. Hi y’all,
    Quick question. Are you still participating in the program where random people form a group and go to different theater shows? And then have dinner afterwards? Wondering cause I am really working on expanding my personal friendships and socialization with the late 30’s early 40 crowd and so on. Let me know.

  2. Quick question, I sighed up for yoga but didn’t receive a return email as to if it began. If I missed that first class, may I sign up again?
