On February 6, NWC members gathered at the Needham History Center. President Mary Ann Pierce and Treasurer Barbara Harkins had decorated the historical classroom with Valentine's Day decor and prepared a delicious light supper and refreshments.

Our special guests from the Needham Community Council were Sandra Robinson (Executive Director) and Cathy Wong (Outreach Director for Community Awareness on Mental Health).

We were pleased to present the NCC with a grant of $1,000 to support the council's speaker series Mindful Community: Talking Mental Health Together. The series aims to address the mental health crisis among local youth by encouraging open communication on mental health issues.
