The Noble Pen for Jun 4, 2020

On-line meetings

We have gone to on-line meetings for the duration of the coronavirus problem, and they are working 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 take-out meal, it would be good to patronize our usual host, Scott’s Restaurant. Check their hours.

Victories

We are continuing to have successful on-line meetings, and none of our group has reported catching the bug.

Dylan wrote a 7k-word story.
