April and May Schedule
In light of the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 the decision has been made by our Board to suspend all in person meetings over the month of April and May. We are intending, wherever possible, to replace those meetings with online Zoom meetings. 
The health and safety of our members, their families and our community is our first and foremost priority. We are monitoring messages and guidance from public health authorities and following/implementing changes as appropriate for our organization.
