COVID Precautions and the Retreat

As the Retreat Committee and the Executive Committee finalize the plans for the Labor Day Retreat, we know that COVID-19 is on everyone’s mind. Although we cannot control the Delta variant or guarantee anyone’s health, we did want to let everyone know the precautions that we’re taking to help us have a great Retreat as safely as we can.
