Coffee, doughnuts and a chat with your fellow Villagers:
An invite from another Villager
10am Monday April 6th
This Sunday at 9:00pm on WGBH 2 a new drama starts on Masterpiece Theater World on Fire. This is a seven-part series.
I thought it might be fun to have a cup of coffee and a chat about the show on Monday April 6th at 10am for those who had tuned into the show on Sunday night. It would be a Zoom meeting and a link will be sent for the meeting on Monday morning. If you need any help with Zoom please email email@example.com.
You don’t have to sign up because everyone who gets this email will also get the link. Join if you are interested. For those of you participating in book groups, this is similar, only the conversation is about a TV drama you watched rather than a book you read.
Of course, you have to bring your own coffee and doughnuts.
