On Tuesday, May 26, I spoke to Angie, one of the managers at Dinah's Family Restaurant, our regular venue for over ten years. She said that their best guess is that indoor dining will not be restored before at least July 1.
I will consult with Dinah's management again by the end of June, if not earlier, to get updated information.
This means, of course, that we must continue to stay our program. We have considered alternate modes of operation, such as podcasting, Zooming, webinars, etc. but our model is an in-person, face-to-face, indoor dining, with post-meal address, which facilitates dialog among the participants.
If when indoor dining is resumed, there are rules for assembly which we deem overly restrictive, such as "social distancing" or even prescription of persons who are not closely related or residing in the same domicile, etc. then regretfully, we will continue to wait.
This may necessitate revamping our schedule of programs. We regret any inconvenience to our speakers and members.
While in hiatus, we will continue to publish the ennouncement and eMinder to provide updated information as to conditions. You are also welcome to comment on this blog, and visit our FaceBook page.
Thank you for your interest in and support of our club, and your service to our cause of freedom.
