Prior to COVID-19, Mill City Commons (MCC) offered a robust monthly calendar of in-person social, cultural, recreational, and educational programs for over 200 members. Normal programming included lectures, tours, demonstrations, volunteer opportunities, social hours, and physical activities. When COVID-19 hit along with social distancing and stay-at-home orders, MCC immediately pivoted to offering virtual programming via Zoom."
