FA Hangout July 2018

July HangoutWhat opportunities has FA opened up for you? -  July's FA Hangout will be led by Lake Denk. The topic this month will be what opportunities has FA opened up for you? At FA Hangouts we laugh, we connect, we hang out, we learn from and about each other...it is so fun! It is just an informal discussion with a theme. We just talk when the theme has run its course, no pressure. People who just want to listen are very welcome!

Every Hangout is open to anyone with FA and a translator if needed for hearing or speech difficulties.
