Century House closed on Tuesday March 17.  That’s almost seven weeks ago! What have you been doing? How have you been coping? Join me for a coffee break where we can share like we were having coffee at Century House!

We will be using Zoom meeting software – email me at  if you need help setting up and running Zoom otherwise click the link below and register! If you have any questions please let me know.  This coffee break is open to anyone 50+.

Register now for Tuesday May 5 at 11:00 a.m. OR 2:00 p.m.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.  Don’t forget when you get the confirmation you will look for the words “click here to join,” click there a few minutes before the session.

You don’t need to have a Zoom account to participate, but if you don’t have the Zoom app you will be asked if it’s OK to install it.  It’s safe (with recent security updates) and free, so go ahead.
