Hello Members,
Can you believe summer is already upon us? What a quarter it has been! I have missed seeing everyone weekly.
The board has taken action on several points this week:
First, we voted to waive the second quarter dues, for which you had not been invoiced. Those who paid annually or paid for the second quarter will be credited a quarter. Billing will start again for the third quarter so look for your invoices next week.
Secondly, we will commence meeting for our weekly luncheons on
July 13th.  RSVP’s will be required because we will be restricted to 60 people per meeting to meet the social distancing requirements. We will be served, rather than simply going through a buffet line.
Please remember to wear masks as required. We will be making arrangements for Zoom for those who cannot attend. Guests will be allowed only if space permits. Summer generally has lower attendance so this is a good time to test the return to physical meetings. Lynn Henricks is our July speaker chair.
Finally, our new website will be up and running next week. It looks great! Thank you to Terry Zelen and his staff, and of course, Doreen, for the great job with it. They will be adding modules for an online membership directory, restricted to members, and payment of dues through the website, in the near future. For now, please check it for speakers and other information.
We look forward to seeing those of you who are comfortable attending
next month.
