Virtual e's Club
COVID-19 has posed many challenges for everyone, but especially for our members who rely on e's Club to see their friends and hang out. Luckily, we were able to move e's Club online and have had great success. We plan on expanding Virtual e's Club across the East Coast and beyond. The program is offered for both teens and young adults.
