We want to honor your expressed caution and deference to safety by being thoughtful and caring in our regathering plans. We are taking these precautions to keep everyone, including our unvaccinated children and members unable to be vaccinated, as safe as possible. We are holding meetings to help us prepare well for a safe and happy regathering in person.
