The Noble Pen for March 4, 2021

On-line meetings

We have gone to on-line meetings while new cases of coronavirus are frequent in the area. 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.

Jeff got a rejection for Halfmane, but it was a personalized letter with suggestions, which is rare.
