As the pandemic continues, we are finding ways to cope with the challenges of sheltering in place. Join in friendly conversation about everyone's favorite pandemic escapes. What's yours? Streaming videos? Eating? Learning a new language? Playing the trumpet? Share your interests or discover a new activity.
(Travel Adventures—Japan has been postponed.)

The Culture Club
Autumn is traditionally the beginning of a vibrant arts season in the Bay Area and in many other cities. Due to the pandemic, most venues are shuttered. If you are interested in visual and performing arts—theatre, opera, music, dance, art—welcome to The Culture Club. We’ll talk about memorable arts experiences and share how we’re nurturing our passions while sheltering in place. This is the start-up meeting for GNV’s Culture Club.  The group will decide about continuing with on-line meetings, and then in-person activities, once the shelter-in-place is lifted.
