Monday Afternoon Tea with BAO

Join us for a virtual afternoon tea from 1:00 to 2:00 PM every other Monday where we will sip tea or our favorite beverage and converse with each other.
New events will be added as needed, so check back to this page for updates.

Since we are all sheltered at home in order to keep each other safe and healthy, we thought it would be nice at the top of the week to hear each other voices and see each other's faces while sipping your favorite cup of tea (or another favorite drink, for some of you it could be an early Happy Hour!). Each afternoon we will focus on a different topic from the list below so you can register for the events you are interested in.
IMPORTANT: Please come prepared by reading or watching the recommended video before you join the meeting.
You can participate by phone or by video conference - it is your choice. A few days before the meeting, we will email you the phone number to call in and the free video conference information.

Please choose the events you would like to register for from the list below and check the box if you want to play virtual BINGO with us. If you want to play, we will email you a bingo card and at the end of each BAO event (lecture or tea), we will draw a number.
