Membership Meetings and COVID Restrictions
The Governor's current restrictions will not allow for public gatherings such as a full membership meeting. Therefore, a decision was made to conduct membership meetings via ZOOM or other video platform during this time. Mel Archer, Event Chair, has volunteered to host our upcoming membership meeting on ZOOM and Kimberly Krueger, Marketing Chair, will be the cohost monitoring the chat feed during the meeting. A link to join this meeting is at the end of this email.
Due to COVID restrictions and additional scheduling changes we are going to continue with our planning of published events with the understanding that locations, dates and times will be tentative and subject to change. Additionally, the September, 2-day Art Market has been removed from the schedule. In its place, another Frost Fair event may be scheduled for November 12 and 13. The tentative location will be the High Desert Music Hall.
The process for sending updates and changes for our website to Dan Mooney was discussed and decided upon. All updates/changes will be sent to Kristi Stone, Chair, for approval and forwarding to Dan.
