Tenleytown Family Class moving; New Middle School Program Starting

Starting in March, the Children & Family Class is moving from Tenleytown to Bethesda. We will continue to hold our classes at RRUUC the 2nd Sunday of the month. However, the time has changed to 4:30-6 p.m. (In March, due to lack of availability on the 11th, the Bethesda Children & Family Class will be held on March 18 at RRUUC. For April-June it will be held on the regularly scheduled 2nd Sundays.)
