So we all may have a Good Life

Marrakech is dedicated to providing opportunities to access recreational and social activities, to learn new hobbies or skills, to make friends and to participate fully in community life. To this end, the Coordinator of Community Connections and the Recreational Specialist create a monthly calendar of events filled with fun, social, and learning opportunities. They are always receptive to suggestions for any activity that may interest the people attending!
