I’m new to Western Mass and I know no one. Is there any events or community get togethers for Deaf people?

Welcome to the area :wave:

These are mix of Deaf/deaf/hh and ASL students and welcoming to all levels of signers. The attendance varies.

ASL Club of Western MA
3rd Sunday of the Month at 1pm
https://www.meetup.com/ASL-Club-of-Western-Massachusetts/
This is a group I started recently and still trying to get the word out.

ASL Social at Atkins Farm
2nd Sunday of the Month at 1pm
https://www.runnersworld.com/active-living-guide/event/monthly-asl-coffee-chat-at-atkins-farms-south-amherst
This meetup usually does not meet in May due to Mother's Day or other months when the 2nd Sunday is a busy holiday at the store.

If you have a facebook account, there is another Amherst/Northampton ASL Social that meets at Fitzwilly's Restaurant & Bar in Northampton. I think this one is mostly ASL Students.
