BNC President’s Message / Summer 2020

Hello everyone.

The summer is shaping up to be a busy one for many of our members. In spite of our isolation, we are connecting with our friends and family through ZOOM. ZOOMING is not a wonderful substitute, but it is a good one even though the hugs, kisses, and handshakes seem to be a thing of the past, at least for a while.

Brandeis is sending, via email, lots of ZOOM opportunities for members to engage our minds in activities that range from learning about the climate crisis, what’s happening in Israel, meditation, cooking, and virtual tours of the Brandeis campus and Art Museums, to name a few.

I urge you to take advantage of these virtual seminars and classes. They are excellent and offered at no cost to us. Making a reservation is very easy. So, please do open every Brandeis email and check out the virtual opportunities.

The Board is busy planning for next season. We will be offering study groups and special events via ZOOM. Some groups are already holding virtual meetings and I urge more of you to take advantage of the ability to meet all summer and include the snowbirds, as well. If you are interested, call me and I’ll set up the ZOOM meeting schedule for your group. My email and phone number are at the bottom of this letter.

Sign-ups for the new season will follow the usual schedule, with publication online sometime in September. Watch for it.

REMINDER: Renew your membership if you haven’t already done so. Go online to our
