A Note from Liana

"Hi everyone! Our winter Whole Children + Milestones Rec session is in full swing with only a couple weeks left. It has been great to start this new position as Program Manager with a bang including a new session, some new staff members and a fantastic Valentines Day Dance that was lots of fun!

I am already working on our Spring catalogue and can’t wait to share what new (and returning) classes will be offered. Some fun events I hope to bring to the Inclusive Community Center in the future are things like a Crafting Night, Movie Nights and even some Friendship Speed Dating events! I would love to hear from you all, so please reach out! I can’t wait to start collaborating to make the ICC a community and friendship hub for all."

You can contact Liana with questions and ideas at [email protected] or (413) 585-8010.
