After careful consideration, it is with regret that we must cancel our annual “Thank You to All” luncheon on May 20th due to numerous outbreaks of COVID. Even as we  thought further about whether to cancel or postpone, many more cases of COVID have become more public.  As is the case with other Charbonneau groups with planned in-person events and who have now changed their plans — CWA, CWGA, Men’s Club and more — we do not want to be a super-spreader. We all know even if vaccinated we can get sick or be  carriers. Although those cases we are aware of are not sending anyone to the hospital yet, we realize that everyone’s immune system is different and do not want to put anyone in jeopardy.

We will stay close to this and hopefully, we will see each other again in-person in June or July.

Also, we wanted to share that many members were able to attend the Opening of Cypress House this week. Rave reviews!!!  Katie said there are plans to have a second opportunity soon for those who were not able to attend.

Our best to everyone and please stay safe.
