Letter from the President

Dear Members,

 
In our Spring Newsletter 2020, we announced the following events for 2020:  our Annual General Meeting to be held on April 18, 2020, our Annual Bowling Tournament to be held on April 5, 2020
and the club’s 65th Anniversary celebration to be held on October 24, 2020.
 
Sadly, I have to inform you that all these events are now cancelled due to the Corona-19 virus.  The Board of Directors decided that it is in the best interest of all our members to not hold any large gathering
events  in 2020.
 
Having said that, the President of the Jodelklub Hohgant Schangnau, Bern called me and informed me that they had to cancel their planned trip to Canada, they also felt that this planned trip cannot be held and they are planning, if at all possible, to come and perform at our 2021 Fall Concert.  The members of the Jodelklub Hohgant are very upset that they cannot travel to Canada, as for many jodlers this was a lifelong wish to come and see Canada.  We shall let all our members know if and when the group can travel to Canada in 2021 and will then select an appropriate venue to finally celebrate our 65th Anniversary of our club.
 
The Annual General Meeting for 2021  and Jass Tournament, as well as the Annual Bowling Tournament dates will be announced in January 2021.  Many members have already paid the 2020 membership fee.  Because we cannot have any events this year, we felt that these members do not have to pay their membership fee for 2021, they are therefore fully paid-up for 2021.
 
Please stay safe and well.
 
Cordially,
 
Lilly Senn and your Board of Directors
