Winter Social Dec 1, 2019 canceled due to blizzard Fireside chats still scheduled

Kate and Zabelle have been in contact, and have decided that it would be prudent to cancel the winter social this Sunday. While the snow may taper off by Sunday afternoon, the projected totals and high winds from late Friday through at least Sunday morning will probably not leave enough time for clean-up and safe travel. We will let you know if we decide to reschedule.
