UPDATE !! MEETING CANCELLED!!!
Due to the very poor air quality as a result of wild fires in various areas, I have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our September meeting. Some of our members have conditions that might be aggravated through exposure to the smoke. Some of our members are dealing with evacuation orders in the areas where their homes are located. Hopefully next month cooling fall rains will resolve many of these issues for us. Please communicate this cancellation information to your friends in the club.
In the meantime, we still do not have any members who have stepped up to be the President of the club or the Show Chairman. If you have any desire to run for these offices, or any other offices, please contact Beth Murphy or Maymelle Wong right away and let them know. We vote in October, and we really need to have more of our members participate in club offices.
Everyone take care and stay safe. Hopefully we will see one another next month!
We are finally going to do it! We are having a meeting on Sept. 13 The board meeting will begin at 1:00 and the general meeting will commence at 2:00. The Grange where we usually meet is still not open and won't be until Clackamas County is in Phase 2. Because of this, we will meet at Fisher Basin Park in Camas, WA. There is lots of room for us to maintain social distancing, restrooms are open, and there is shade. It will be necessary for everyone to bring their own folding chair. There will be no refreshments so if you want something, you must bring your own. (No sharing, please.) We encourage everyone to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth. Directions to the park can be found elsewhere in this newsletter.
Please try and attend this meeting. It's been 6 months and we have much to discuss.
Our nominating committee has been busy calling people to see who might want to run for our offices this next year. A few people have volunteered but we still have some important offices that do not have candidates. If you would consider serving in some position and want to have a part in directing the club, please step forward and say you'll help. Call either Maymelle or Beth. Their numbers are listed on the front page of the club directory. THE CLUB NEEDS YOU!!!
REALLY looking forward to spending Sunday afternoon with you!
