Pandemic 2020

5 May 2020 —  Due to the pandemic and Georgia and Gwinnett County restrictions, we will not be able to attend or hold meetings at the Bethesda Senior Center.  When those shelter-in-place guidelines change, we will update the website.  But our Garden Tour 2020 is on – see detailed information above.
