Hello JVP-Bay Area Members and Friends,
We hope you’ve all had a good start to spring.  Although we’re not completely out of the COVID woods yet, it seems as though we’ve gotten to a place where it’s possible for most people to be comfortable gathering outdoors.  On that hopeful note, we want to invite you to the first in-person JVP-Bay Area Community Gathering in more than two years!
We’re excited to offer this opportunity for new and old members to meet each other, Chapter Council members, and Workgroup leaders. We’ll have snacks, a brief update on the current work of the chapter, art and other activities, and – if you’re not already active – info on how you can get involved!

What:  JVP-Bay Area Community Gathering
When:  Sunday, June 12, 2022, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Where:  Live Oak Park, Berkeley, Picnic Area 2
Directions:  Enter Live Oak Park heading east from Walnut Street, near the Berkeley Art Center, 1275 Walnut Street; Picnic Area 2 is wheelchair accessible and located along the walkway just to the south of the Berkeley Art Center.
What to bring:  Yourself and your friends!!  (We’re asking all those who attend to be vaccinated and bring a mask, just in case there’s a need for it.)
This gathering will take place in Picnic Area 2, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., with a short program around 3:00.  This site has 4 picnic tables and bench seating.  JVP will provide snacks and drinks together with additional seating for those who may need it, but feel free to bring your own comfortable camp chair if you like.
If you need a ride to the JVPBA Community Gathering from North Berkeley  BART – or if you can provide a ride for someone else from BART – please contact Eve Hershcopf at bayarea@jvp.org or 510-418-5388.
We look forward to seeing you on June 12th!   We really hope you can join us!!
(For those of you who will be out of town or otherwise unavailable, we hope to have another community gathering at the end of the summer.)
