Some of the things we hope to be doing were in the works when we had to close down. They include helping our members get email set up and sending out newsletters through email to keep everyone in touch. We’re looking into options for those of you currently without internet as well,” the organization said in a news release. “We do recommend masks, and definitely ask you to please wear one if you’re not fully vaccinated. This protects all of us, and insures that we will be able to continue having the meetings we all enjoy.”
