Resources during COVID-19

Hello members,

The council must inform you that because of the COVID -19 crisis and how this pandemic has impacted our community, both in the civic and military populations, your leadership team in collaboration with the Navy leadership in the region have decided not to have Navy Birthday Ball event in October.  We also have decided to cancel our Marine Corps Birthday luncheon in November.  We are sadden by this outcome, but we cannot in good conscious put people at risk in a situation whereby there is a small chance of getting infected from the Coronavirus.  So stay safe and healthy and we hope this crisis will end soon.
