Dates: Thursdays starting September 19
Time:
 4:30 pm – 6 pm
Location:  Koerner Library Room 167
Website: http://connectivitygroup.wordpress.com/

Registration is required to ensure we will have the right amount of space.

The Kaleidoscope will continue to have multiple weekly support group meetings as well.
