In-person meeting Wednesday, April 14th at Sunnyside Up Cafe
We will again be meeting at Sunnyside Up Cafe Wednesday, April 14th, for those who feel comfortable enough to venture out and attend. The room should be available by 11:00 and orders placed by 11:30 when the meeting is scheduled to begin. Masks are still encouraged but optional and no one will take offence at whatever your choice is after you are in our meeting room.
A reminder that we still need nominations and have an election for the 2020 - 2022 term of Chapter officers but the voting can wait until we are meeting in strength again, which may not be until later next year. The current officers will continue in their capacity until such a time as this, but are looking forward to those elections.
Hope you will soon receive your Covid vaccine. Remember to get registered, if you haven't already, for your Covid-19 inoculations at https://cvvaccine.nmhealth.org/my-registration.html.
Stay safe out there.
