VIRTUAL OPEN MIC featuring Hillary McHenry & Joyce Lee

Join us Friday, November 6th, for an evening of great vibes and amazing poetry. The beginning will be open to all to share a poem. After the open mic we will have the honor of listening to the works of our two features this month: Hillary McHenry & Joyce Lee. Feel free to join as a participant with work to share or as an appreciator of the arts who wants to just sit back and listen. All are Welcome! Between now and the event, take some time to familiarize yourself with our amazing featured poets! Below is a link to Hillary’s YouTube which displays much of her work and the link for Joyce’s book Dancing In The Presence of Men: A Book of Love & Lovers.

SATURDAY HIKE

Almaden Quick Silver County Park

We are pleased to bring back Saturday Hikes! The summer heat stayed with us a little longer here in the Bay but things are finally starting to cool down. Let’s welcome this nice fall weather with the return of Saturday Hikes. Join us Saturday, November 14th at Almaden Quicksilver County Park for a chill hike on the Wood Road Castillero Trail. It’s an easy 5 mile loop with great views and some historical tokens along the trail. Feel more than welcome to make it a family event and bring kids or dogs along! *I will update this with information for parking and where we will all meet up before the Meetup. Be sure to check back in about a week*
