We are planning (hoping) to resume meeting in our meeting hall starting on October 27, 2021. Our plan is to hold our meetings in the hall for members able to attend, while also providing a recording of all meetings for those unable to attend.

Here's a pre-pandemic meeting in our hall. We are all looking forward to resuming these normal meetings.
