The VE Session scheduled for April 4, 2020 is canceled.
From Marcel, W1MLD, President:
“Hello to All,
Hope you are all well.I am cancelling the business meeting for April 2nd 2020 due to the mandate by Gov. Baker to limit the gatherings of more than ten people. The May meeting will be addressed when the time comes.
The work party for Saturday will be postponed for a latter date as this serious virus subsides.
The Sunday morning coffee meetings are still on as long as we keep it to ten (10) members or less and do not have any cold or sickness symptoms.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Hope you all stay well and be careful in your daily activities. Wash your hands many times a day.”
