What's new:

We are resuming our meeting at Sunnyside Up Cafe again, as our summer hiatus is over, and the Governor has opened up indoor dining to 25%.

For access to the Members Only website area, please contact Sam Shaw for the username and password if you do not already have it.
Our September 9th. meeting will be in-person at Sunnyside Up Cafe.

       We will have our in-person meeting next Wednesday on September 9th, for those who feel comfortable enough to venture out and attend. Masks are encouraged but optional and no one will take offence at whatever your choice is after you are inside our meeting room. The staff at Sunnyside Up Cafe have rearranged the tables and restricted our occupancy to 20 people to meet the Governor's guidelines, so we should not have any issues with our normal attendance. We are looking at having a shorter meeting, adjourning at 12:30 instead of 1:00 for those who may want to hang around informally and catch up with one another. Depending on how many show up, Tom may do a short presentation, but this first meeting is mainly about testing the waters for continuing in-person meetings again.

September's Speaker: Tom Dyble

Topic: Tom has been following the situation in Belarus and may give a short presentation about it .

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. Looking forwarded to this virus crisis being over so we can all meet again with no concerns.
