Tri Lakes has said we can continue meeting once they open up the building after COVID restrictions are lifted.  In the meantime, Skip Chang has volunteered his detached shop as a temporary location to meet.  Based on individual’s comfort level for group meeting due to the COVID situation, we will most likely continue to hold hybrid meetings – some in person and remainder via VTC (video teleconfercing).  If interested in joining the meeting please use the “Contact Board President” on the website under the Board of Directors tab.

 

The next regularly scheduled meeting will be at 1900 on Monday, 14 September 2020 at Tri Lakes Cares, 235 Jefferson Street, Monument, Colorado.  If the COVID restrictions are not lifted, a VTC meeting or at Skip Chang’s shop or hybrid approach will be use.
