NEW COVID-19 UPDATES
We have decided to delay our May online Board meeting date to Saturday, May 16th, 2020. In addition, we felt it was in our best interest to open this meeting to the public so questions about our operations and events can be promptly answered. Thus, our May meeting will be our first open public meeting, and it will be conducted through an online meeting host (such as ZOOM).
We will release more details on our website and social media by next Sunday (May 10th, 2020).
