We sincerely regret that we are not yet able to meet for our monthly Cypress Branch luncheon which was scheduled for February 18th. We are hopeful that this will be lifted by the time we begin plans for our March 18th luncheon.  Meanwhile we are moving ahead with our plans for the April 23rd Crab and Rib Dinner.  See below.

Cypress House Project

Katie said that we have received nearly all the items needed for the Cypress House upgrade.  The actual launch date has moved out a bit, but the work is moving ahead generally as planned.  Thank you to all for your help with this.  If you wish to donate further, the wish list is still open on Amazon.  Orders made on Amazon are shipped direct to HQ.

Crab & Rib Dinner & Auction

We still are planning for the Crab & Rib event on April 23rd.  The planning committee met this this month and decided to continue moving ahead.  There will not be a balloon pop feature, but the dinner and paddle raise are still on the agenda.  We are planning a live gift basket auction and believe we have most of what is needed to pull that off.  However, if you are saving items for the event, you can contact Elaine Swyt to discuss.  Volunteers who signed up to help will be contacted ahead of the event to lay out the timetable there.  All registered ticket holders from the September 2021 postponed event will be grandfathered into the April 23rd event.  Katie is following up with all to be sure they will be attending.  Whether we are approximately 110 or 220 in capacity is still to be decided depending on restrictions.

Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any thoughts or concerns.

Our best to all and please stay safe.
