2nd Wednesdays

2nd Wednesdays is a series of free lectures, concerts, and special arts events for all adults in the community. This series spotlights local talent and provides a first-rate cultural experience.  Its other aim, no less important, is to afford community adults an opportunity to spend time sharing culture and conversation with neighbors. It’s held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm.

** Due to COVID-19, 2nd Wednesdays will take place digitally (when possible) until further notice. Subscribe here to receive email updates with links to view the online lectures and presentations, or check this page regularly. **

2nd Wednesdays attendees enjoy jazz in the garden.
