Our adult programs are supported in part by the Nancy Parker Endowment Fund
and are free and open to the public.

When possible, programs are taped for later telecasting on the local public access television channel, JATV. A sign language interpreter can be arranged with two weeks' advance notice. Call 758-5807 to arrange this service.
