Movie Monday
Teaching Tuesday
Together Thursday
Feel Good Friday
As many of you know, OSPN has been hosting significant online programming. We are currently in talks to potentially offer some safe, sane, in-person events IN ADDITION TO our online programming, and want to hear from you about:
  1. your concerns in attending events in-person, mainly indoors but with the possibility of outdoor events as well, such as:
    • mask-wearing policy for yourself and others
    • food service, if any
    • limits on how many people in an area, and how far apart
    • hand sanitizer, etc.
  2. what types of events you are interested and feel safe in attending in-person, if any
Please leave feedback below or email me directly at ospn.programming@gmail.com your thoughts, ideas and concerns. Know that we take everyone’s health and safety as our paramount priority as we consider new ways for our community to connect and reduce isolation.
Thanks so much! Wishing you all good health and happiness.
