PRESIDENTS NOTE
What a pleasure to see so many smiling faces on Zoom today.  Katrina and I estimate that we had just under 50 attendees which included 11 guests.  I am delighted that so many members are engaging with the new Zoom environment and are obviously enjoying connecting with other members via this medium.  Time will tell how long we may need to meet in this way and hopefully everyone will continue to be a part of this opportunity to stay in touch at this difficult time.
