What Another Nice Mess The World Has Gotten Us Into!

I've waited for the last minute for some good news about when we can have another meeting. So far, there's nothing but bad news. California will start to reopen for normal business over the coming weeks and months, but gatherings for groups of our size are still not possible in the immediate future. Based on what we currently know, we will be in one of the later phases of reopening.

As a result, our May 26th and July 21st meetings are officially CANCELED. Also, keep in mind that The Mayflower Club is currently closed, and we will not be able to have a meeting until they are allowed to reopen. It is reasonable to believe the Mayflower Club will need time to prepare the building for reopening. Simply stated, that means our September 15th meeting is still "up in the air."

To save the cost of postage, we do not plan to send any more newsletters until we have a confirmed date for our next meeting. Once the next meeting date is announced, we will be in a better position to answer any questions you may have pertaining to your membership. In the meantime, if you have any general questions we can be reached at and you can follow us on FaceBook and on our website.

Also, the International Convention scheduled to take place in Rhode Island this June has been postponed until August 2021. The location and itinerary of the convention have not changed, just the dates. For more information, go to to visit the official convention website.
