All of us miss the fellowship and fun that takes place at membership meetings. We would like nothing better than to be able to safely resume in-person meetings. The Board considered the issue of resuming membership meetings at our virtual August 6th meeting. Given the continuation of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board agreed that the continued health and safety of our members is our top priority. Given this priority, as well as current governmental restrictions for gatherings, the Board decided that all meetings for the remainder of the year will be virtual meetings rather than in-person meetings.

We are taking advantage of today’s technology to meet virtually. We realize that this approach has both its advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that members who ordinarily can’t attend the membership meetings because they live far from Quakertown, will now have easy access to the meetings. The unfortunate disadvantage is that members without computers need to find another member with a computer in order to participate.

Our first meeting will take place on Friday, October 9 at 7:30 pm, our normal meeting time. Tom Nemeth will be our virtual presenter. You will be able to hear his live narration along with his pictures on your computer in the comfort of your own home. The presentations will utilize the Zoom meeting platform. Click on this link at 7:30 pm on October 9th to gain access to the webinar.
