Circle Calendar of Events

Each year, two events in Boston and two events in New York City are held, one in each location in the fall and again in the winter/spring. Invitations to these events for you and a guest are sent electronically approximately 6-weeks in advance and a RSVP is kindly requested. Events are complimentary to Circle supporters and a nominal fee for non-supporters is requested to participate. Certain events might carry a fee for all who participate. All new and renewing supporters are acknowledged in the newsletter.
