During this period of reduced gatherings, our chapter meetings at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church in North Reading will be canceled until we can safely and effectively resume them. In the meantime, we will be holding Online Video Meetings. The next Online Video Meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on Monday, July 6th. Members will receive an email announcement a few days prior to the meeting, asking whether they are interested in participating. By responding YES to this email, you will then be emailed an invitation to the Online Video Meeting. You may also request an invitation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you would like to participate.
We are also informing you that the annual TCF National Conference, which was scheduled to be held in Atlanta, GA, July 24-26, has been canceled due to COVID-19. However, TCF has scheduled a Virtual Conference, which will be held on Friday, July 31st to Sunday, August 2nd. Please check this link for more details:
