BoomRS

BoomRS are those who are Boomer Generation and those on the cusp, not so much an age as a mindset, getting together to take advantage of Center City life, events and activities, as well as social, spiritual and educational opportunities at RS. Singles and couples welcome.

Chairs: Donna Root ([email protected]), Linda Karp Rudow ([email protected])
