WE WILL BE MEETING AT ELLEN’S PAVILION IN BLACK FOREST ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 11AM TO 2PM. an email blast will be sent to members with the address.

Hello all,

A long, serious and heartfelt discussion was had and it was decided that we would meet At Ellen’s Pavilion on Saturday, October 3rd. Membership will be given an email blast with the address. We are hoping for a sunny day.; a balmy 72 degrees is the prediction.
A safety station will be provided to include: one-time use mask (although not required since this is an outdoor event); antibacterial soap; social 6 ft distancing will be adhered.
Please bring your own bagged lunch. Also, any knitting or spinning you would like to do as we gather – 6 feet apart.
Black Forest is also usually cooler please dress accordingly, ie, bring a jacket and head covering.
Bottled water will be available.
Program: a quick tutorial by Ellen on an origami paper towel mask. Aaah, the times we are in, indeed speak for themselves.
Weather: if inclement weather there will be an email blast for bad weather to our members and we will try to gather the next Saturday.
