Our November 11th. meeting will be in-person at Sunnyside Up Cafe.
Our meeting this month is on Wednesday November 11h, 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. We have been delayed the last two meetings in accessing our room due to the restaurant using the room for regular diners, due to the restricted number of occupants allowed, but have told me that they will make a more concerted effort to have it ready for us by 11:00. Masks are encouraged but optional and no one will take offence at whatever your choice is after you are in our meeting room. October's meeting went well, again with 6 of us in attendance. It was good to see Hamid again as he made it up from Las Cruces. Tom did part 1 of his presentation, on things leading up to the current situation in Belarus.
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 have been able to get your flu shot, and remember to stay safe out there.
November's Speaker: TBD
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.
