CONNECT Community Series

The CONNECT Community Series at Park Avenue invites you to connect on issues you care about so that we can do good and feel good – together! Held 3 – 4 times a year, these free events are open to the community and offer ways to educate ourselves and contribute to good work being done in the world.
