UPDATE REGARDING OUR CLUB'S MEETINGS:
THE PREZ SEZ
Hello everyone. I hope you are doing well during this whole Covid-19 event. According to the most recent State of Oregon directive as I write this, Clackamas County, where the Grange is located, is open to Phase 1 and will remain so through our meeting date. This means that local groups of 25 can meet if we follow the guidelines. Unfortunately, the guidelines include that only residents of the county where the gathering is located may be part of the group and that travel from outside of the county to participate is prohibited. Thus, the club cannot meet for our regular June meeting.
We are working to secure a place for our annual July picnic. It would be outside, easy to stay apart from each other, and we would probably bring our own food and drinks and not share food. We have much to discuss for the rest of the year's events. Our show has been canceled. We are planning on having a big one-day sale to allow our members to sell their birds and accessories. The details are in the works. Even though we haven't been able to get together, your board has been busy behind the scenes trying to figure out what we will be allowed to do for the rest of the year. We, above all, want our members to feel safe and comfortable in the activities we are able to hold. We know the sale of the birds that club members have raised is extremely important to all of you. Much discussion between board members has and continues to occur. If you have ideas or suggestion, please share them with a board member.
On a happier note, I've been hearing from members of our club that many birds have been raised or are still in the nest. Thank goodness for this wonderful hobby that brings us so much joy and pleasure and gives us something enjoyable to do. New life is such a special spark in our lives at this time.
Take care and stay well,
