Note: No registration required. This is a free in-person community forum that asks, What can we learn from our experiences during the pandemic?
Time: 9:00-10:30 a.m.
Location: Outdoor Shrine of the Marian Fathers (at Eden Hill, Stockbridge)
Event Description: Isolation, anxiety, depression, despair, grief, and anger have filled our days over the past two years, as our society has struggled through the pandemic and tried to figure out how to manage it. Health care workers, seniors, students, teachers, parents, restaurant owners, business people, families, and town officials–many have felt alone with uncertainty, turmoil, and confusion, both about events in our individual lives and about changing governmental responses. Some have even discovered new aspects of resilience, of family and community engagement. This Community Forum is an opportunity to hear from each other, to learn from the range of our experiences as fellow citizens, and to bring us back together as a community as the pandemic wanes.
