This is a casual monthly opportunity for you to visit with other Living Beauties in your area. There is no program, just an opportunity to bond with other women. Whether you initially indicated your interest or not, every living beauty is welcome to attend. There’s no commitment – just come when you can! The First Wednesdays are from 9:30 – 11 AM. Feel free to discuss among your group to see if another time works better for your group. We hope as many of you as possible will take advantage of the opportunity to build community and sisterhood.
For the month of January, the geographic area hosts are as follows:
