What happens if there is a cancellation?
Friends in Action wants everyone to be safe, we follow WMURnews reports and make the safest decision for everyone. If Friends in Action dose choose to cancel, the website will be updated and emails will be sent out. Cancellation decisions can be hard, but we do not want our friends to be in a compromising situation. Friends in Action will cancel if it’s too hot to hold an activity or if the weather causes driving difficulties. Please check the calendar for cancellations and/or check email.
Does Friends in Action provide transportation?
Friends in Action does not provide transportation. Many families carpool, but this is not organized by Friends in Action.
