Class Guidelines
TJQMBB will only be held virtually via Zoom. All participants MUST use a webcam during the entire class. If participants do not have the proper equipment, they should not register for this class. Phone participation is not allowed.

Donation Cost
There is a suggested donation of $50.00, as with all Older Americans Act programs, donations are based only on a participant’s ability to pay. Donations help to expand programming.

This program is hosted by the Quail Brook Senior Center, which is supported by funds from the County of Somerset, the State of New Jersey, the Federal Older Americans Act and sponsored Somerset County Board of Commissioners.
