Happy Holidays to all whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, or any of the other 26 religious or cultural holidays that occur between November 25th and January 6th. Just enjoy the time and company.
At this point in time, we are looking forward to resuming in-person meetings in room Q 80 at the Campbell Community Center, # 1 West Campbell Avenue, on January 18th, 2022. No coffee can be served as of this date. Anyone entering the Community Center must wear a mask whether vaccinated or not. We will update any changes to this information as we receive them. Since our meetings must currently be limited to no more than 50 people, please sign up to attend prior to the meeting by calling Joy Walsh, Telephone Chair, or e-mailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her phone number is in this Dispatch. Your reservation should be made prior to January 17th, 2022. If you do not sign up, you may not be able to attend, depending on numbers.
The Board will be discussing a slight increase in yearly dues at its next meeting. The information will be in the next Dispatch as well as on our website. As you know, we are spending more than we are taking in. The cost of printing and postage has been rising for over 4 years and we can no longer subsidize the cost of sending the Dispatch. If you can possibly receive your Dispatch via e-mail, please consider making that change on your renewal information. I will also no longer bring copies of the Agenda to the General Meeting except for a few copies for new members. We have been paying to print copies of the Agenda and then throwing them out after the meeting, which is a waste. If you wish to have an Agenda in front of you at the meeting, please print and bring your own.
Our Annual Luncheon has been moved to March 15th. More details will follow in the January Dispatch and at the General Meeting regarding place, menu, and cost. Payment will be collected at the January and February meetings.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person in January.
