I am sure I am not alone in thinking/hoping/praying that we might be back to something that felt a bit more “normal” by this point, however that is not the case thanks to ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic.The board has been at work trying to find ways for us to gather together (virtually), engage with meaningful programming, and develop ways of sharing live performances through virtual means (similar to the National AGO’s program earlier this Summer). Details will continue to be worked out regarding these oppotunities, but we hope you will plan to actively participate and perhaps invite new folks to join in these virtual opportunities. We all look forward to the time when we can be together in person, however will continue to err on the side of caution and put the health and well-being of all members first when considering in-person programs.
