Special Zoom Summer Programs
          Our classes and special programs will all be on Zoom. The good thing is that, even if you do go to the Cape or Maine for the summer, you can still take your classes or listen in on a program. Zoom is fairly easy to use and we can help you learn how to use it; call us at 203-594-3620.
