Message from the President

August 17, 2020

Like so many other aspects of our lives, the pandemic required us to do things differently this year. I am sure none of us could ever have imagined conducting our Board of Trustees and Annual Meetings over the internet on a Zoom webinar. Keeping in mind that not all of us are experts at this new technology, we had an informative and productive Annual Meeting. A hard-working group of volunteers spent significant time planning and learning the Zoom technology to make the meetings happen. Thanks to all of you for your patience and understanding with the process and technology.

Notice From Republic Waste Management

The main message is that they are not taking bulk items. Everything needs to be in the prepaid bags and under 50 lbs. You can buy bags at Family Fare. Sometimes people have larger items that they tie bags to, hoping that they will get picked up. That strategy won't work now... Ken
