The Noble Pen for June 17, 2021

In-person outdoor meeting June 17 (weather permitting)

We are planning to have an in-person meeting at 30-Hop‘s outdoor tables on that date, if the weather is suitable. In case of bad weather, as happened last week, or an alarming increase in COVID cases per day, we will just Zoom. The restaurant is at 951 Blairs Ferry Rd NE, with an entrance on Rockwell Drive, diagonally across from the Target store.

We are looking for a quieter meeting place. If you have a suggestion, let us know. Last we knew, Scott’s was not open evenings due to lack of staff.

RSVP, please, to get an estimated count.

On-line meetings

We have gone to on-line meetings while new cases of coronavirus are frequent in the area and people haven’t had a chance to get vaccinated. The meetings work well. To participate, you can use the Zoom app on your smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer with a microphone. Use of a camera is optional. You can also call in with any phone but it would be long-distance if those rates apply to you.
For further details and the meeting ID number, contact us.
In the meantime, if you want a restaurant or take-out meal, it would be good to patronize our usual host, Scott’s Restaurant. Check their hours, as they are shortened due to a scarcity of staffing.

Victories

Linn County COVID cases are down to around 10 per day average, which is encouraging.
Aime wrote the mission statement and vision statement for her city.
