Please stay healthy and safe!

After much deliberation, we are cancelling this year’s annual dinner. 
It is unfortunate, but with the declaration of a “Pandemic,” it’s in the best interests of everyone that this step be taken. 

Everyone will be given credit for a meeting.

As usual, all will be notified towards the end of the summer when next season’s meeting dates are set. 

I sincerely wish everyone the best of health and an enjoyable off season.

Joe Manzione
