April Discussion Groups


Because we are all observing stay-in-place orders, face to face discussion group meetings have been canceled. To provide members and friends the opportunity for social interaction around a topic of interest to all of us, three virtual meetings will be held on Zoom. Please join any one of the three meetings.

Wednesday, April 8, 10AM – Host Elaine Apter
Thursday, April 9, 9:30AM – Host Bee Ditzler
Tuesday, April 14, 7:30 – Host Elaine Apter

Topic
"Navigating the Coronavirus Crisis"


Four questions to start a conversation: (Click here to see the full statement of questions.)

  • What do you think about conducting the primary election by mail? What’s good about it? What may not be good about it?
  • What social issues are brought to the foreground because of the coronavirus crisis? What is the effect on workforce inequities, technology, or virtual visits for medical care?
  • What are you doing to stay engaged and resilient? Has social distancing encouraged you to try something new or different?
  • How are children faring? Has the county’s school system done enough to meet the challenge? Could remote learning become a permanent part of education?
