A Letter from the Director
Sister Janet Doyle headshot
September is Hispanic Heritage Month and we are welcoming Baldemar Velasquez, the Founder of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC), to Weber Center. It is the 50th anniversary of FLOC, and Baldemar will share that organization's story of struggle and success.

Fall is the perfect time to come and walk the labyrinth, stroll the Cosmic Walk, or sit on one of our lovely decks to watch the leaves turn. Hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,
Sister Janet

P.S. You can still attend several programs this month! Visit our website for a complete list of programs and RSVP today.
