All CHAS events are cancelled through 4/30 due to school facility restrictions put in place as recommended by the Department of Health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We will try our best to reschedule what we can but due to the limited amount of time and space available in May and June we can not make any guarantees at this time. We will post rescheduled events here. Thank you for your understanding!
