Holiday Traditions

Thursday, Dec 16, 2021, 1 – 2PM EDT (New York Time)

Each December, the NGO Committee on the Family typically discusses holiday traditions and has a potluck holiday treat. It’s usually a little less formal (as evidenced by the video), but it’s a wonderful chance to get together and get to know each other better. Our presentations this year, from board members Siobhan Heekin-Canedy and Marcia Barlow were particularly poignant, so we decided to share them here.
