New River Chapter Holiday Social
December 13, 2020 - CANCELLED!
* The New River Chapter's Board of Directors held a Zoom meeting to evaluate our plans for hosting a holiday party. Due to an abundance of caution and owing to the continued Phase 3 limitations on public gatherings in NC, it was decided that we will NOT hold an in person celebration on Sunday, December 13, 2020 which was to have taken place at the Ashe Arts Council building in West Jefferson, NC.
* Given that our last gathering was the BOTM - which was a successful time with many of the Chapter members present - and the fact that we go into a form of hibernation until sometime in April, 2021, the Chapter leaders also decided that we should have some type of "face to face" opportunity to celebrate the season. We will be holding a ZOOM gathering at 2:00 PM on Sunday, December 13, 2020 for as long as people want to stay connected when we can lift a glass and share in whatever holiday treat that each of us want to have.
* An e-mail message will be forthcoming sometime after Thanksgiving that will have the link that Chapter members can use to connect with everyone. Just for fun, everyone is invited to dress in their most festive holiday garb for their on-screen presence.
* We look forward to having this last time for meeting in 2020 and hope that 2021 will bring a whole new perspective on life "POST COVID-19" at which time we can continue to share in camaraderie with other like-minded retirees and once again work to "Never Stop Serving."
