The League Presents – Fun & Entertainment during the Pandemic with Jerry Reilly
We have all been experiencing a difficult 2020 and as we approach its long-awaited end, I thought reflecting on Newton’s Fun & Entertainment during the Pandemic with Newton’s own “instigator” of fun Jerry Reilly would be a nice way to usher out the year. To accomplish this, Jerry and I had a conversation while he shared video clips showing how fun in Newton evolved from being solely virtual to its migration outdoors and now is coming full circle to having to go back to virtual offerings.
