Our Branch president, Diana Witt, announces “It is with regret that I think we must cancel the May 2nd meeting.” Our programs are subject to the guidelines set out by the CDC and Governor Kemp, and the health of our members and their guests takes priority during the Covid19 pandemic.
Of course, this leaves us with the problem of elections. and installation of newly elected officers. At this time, the Board will be working with Diana to set out a revised election process. When a decision is finalized, members will be notified and the information posted on this website.
Please continue to protect your health by observing the CDC and state guidelines during this difficult time.
The March 21, 2020 Branch meeting, scheduled to be held at the Cross Creek Cafe, has been canceled, in compliance with recommendations from the CDC and Governor Kemp. We regret that we will be unable to hear from Jeff Graham, Executive Director of Georgia Equality, our scheduled speaker.
