COVID-19 Statement from our Club President
The JCC Board just voted [March 16] to suspend our bimonthly meetings.
This does not affect outings or other club contests, etc. ... One of the considerations for the decision by the Board was the high percentage of older members. It is suggested by the experts that you avoid contact with children (they can be sick w/o symptoms), restaurants, shopping, and etc.
We will keep you informed of all goings on with the Club. Please stay safe. - Young McQueen
The People's Choice contest will be on hiatus as long as we are unable to meet in person. Watch your email and The Weekly for details, but plan on the upcoming themes to get pushed back into the next in-person meeting when it is scheduled.
The upcoming themes did include: April - Food | May - Close-up | June - Opposites. The Guidelines for the People's Choice contest are on the website under competitions.
