Winter History Class

Date(s): 02/11/2021
Time: 9:00 AM - 11:45 AM

Winter History Class will continue this year in a virtual format, with some great opportunities for arm-chair education and travel without concern for snow days! 

Winter History Class will start on February 4th at its usual time of 9:00.  Like always, we’ll divide the morning into two parts, with the second session starting at 10:30. The program will be held on Zoom. 

The full schedule of sessions can be found here.

How do you connect to this great line-up of presentations? Members of the Ephrata Cloister Associates can purchase a ticket to the entire History Class at $45 for each computer connection. For those people, not yet members, the fee is $55.  Please print this registration form and mail it with your check payable to the Ephrata Cloister, to the site’s address at 632 West Main Street, Ephrata, PA 17522.

Thank you to Hampton Inn & Suites for sponsoring the first week of class!

If you don’t already have Zoom, you can install it HERE .Each week you’ll receive an email with a new link to that week’s program.  Once you have Zoom installed, all you need to do is click on the link at 9:00 a.m. the day of the program, or a few minutes before if you wish, and you will be connected to the Class.

If you are new to Zoom, I recommend this short, easy to follow video that gives you basic information about using Zoom. 

We will also review some of this information at the first Class on February 4th. If you’re like me, before last year I never heard of Zoom, but I’ve learned a few things. If you’re having trouble, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
