    Whether you live on the East Side or the West side, you are invited to join us for breakfast via your smartphone or computer in the comfort of your home.

    We think it is prudent to avoid direct contact for at least a little while, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up conversation with our friends over a sweet roll and a cup of coffee. We can have a virtual, bring-your-own-sweet-roll breakfast without having to change out of our pajamas! And we can overcome the divide between East and West by setting up a digital meeting at which the Sofra gang and the Elie’s gang can get to know one another.

    We look forward to "seeing" you.


    Registration Deadline:  Friday, September 18

    Registration:   Advance registration is required.  You are encouraged to register online.  To register by phone or email, call the Association office. If you or your guest registered for this seminar but cannot attend, please cancel your registration online, or email/call the UWRA office.

    NOTE:  The weblink and virtual call information will be included in the meeting reminders registrants receive.
