Access Leisure Monthly Calendar - Virtual activities

COVID-19

With the current and evolving COVID-19 situation, all Access Leisure structured programs and events (that require participants to physically meet) are postponed. See our virtual activities, listed below .

We hope to resume regular programming as soon as possible. This decision was difficult to make, and for all of us to work together using appropriate measures we hope to protect the health and well-being of our community. Like the rest of the world, we are adapting and responding to new information and changing protocols as needed daily. We realize there is a lot of fear and anxiety out there, but we are a strong and resilient community.
