    Hello there
    greetings from Amsterdam.I am reading your newsletter with interest, and I am quite impressed by your programme.
    We have in Amsterdam an oraganization for 50+ women called:
    Wijze Oude Wijven {WOUW} Wise Old Women.
    The oldest members are more than 90 years old,and still going strong.I am little yonger with,86 years.We gave a couple of groeps ,and we read different books,dealing f.i. with the Feminisme, getting older etc.And we are still active in the society with our old and rich experiences and knowledge.
    Maybe we can change greetings and keep contact on these days of corona.
    Many grettings,stay healthy and much luck with your work.
