Finally, this issue includes a “save the date” notice about Big Give this year focused on supporting our reopening efforts. Please visit the I-House Berkeley Global Community platform for some fun posts I’ll be making tomorrow and Sunday about Lunar New Year 2021, and in honor of Valentine’s Day and the many I-House couples who found one another under the Dome!
