Brother and Sisters, following the guidance of the International Office and continuing to always put the safety of the staff, our members, and their families ahead of all other matters, President Moore and the Executive Board have once again made the extremely difficult decision to cancel our General Membership Meeting. The General Membership Meeting scheduled for October 17, is cancelled. It was the genuine hope of President Moore and the Executive Board that September would be the last postponed meeting of the pandemic.
Governor Cooper moved our state into Phase III, but did not loosen the restrictions on indoor and outdoor meeting capacities. In addition, the number of Covid-19 cases in our community has not leveled off, but continued to climb, with some of the cases hitting very close to home for our members and their families. As schools, movie theaters, and bars are allowed to slowly open, the risk of spread increases with each passing minute.
President Moore thanks everyone for their patience and asks that we all do our part by wearing masks, washing hands, and keeping ourselves socially distanced.
If you have an issue that you feel cannot wait until the November meeting, please call or email President Moore and he will get your issue on the E-Board's agenda this Saturday. President Moore's contact info is: 828-691-1247 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
