Message from the President

Dear Friends,

It has been a while since I have been in touch, but I wanted to wait for the right time and provide an update on our 2021 so far. Every time I put fingers to keys, something significant happened related to lockdowns, variants, deaths, vaccines or infection rate, and I just couldn’t bring myself to write. This week, we were buoyed by the increase in vaccine availability but still face the reality of the variant spread and the growing, real threat of a third wave.
