30th Anniversary

We regret to announce that, due to the pandemic
and the now-familiar safety concerns related to large gatherings, we have had to cancel our 30th Anniversary Annual Meeting, originally slated for this summer.

We had hoped to be able to just postpone it but,
like so many other festive and celebratory events,
it will have to wait until next year.

We look forward to sharing food and news
with all our neighbors again
once we can do so without health concerns.

Thank you for your support!
