REM Community Chat

You are invited to join REM’s Community Chat. We are just getting this free REM Community Initiative started so you will be helping us design it to develop a commonly held vision of what it should be like.  We are planning 2 chat hours a week, one at 3:30 PM Tuesdays and one at 7:00 PM Thursdays.

Suggestions already on the table include having people call in or email ideas of what they’d like to learn or talk about and then REM would work to find someone to lead the Zoom discussion and develop resources. Some envision having a large gathering to start off the meeting and then breaking into smaller groups for a friendly chat. Also mentioned are exercise classes and crafting experiences.
