Fellow members of Strait Turners,

 

We are going to skip our end of March meeting to be cautious and avoid placing anyone at risk in the rapidly evolving Covid19 situation. The general guidance from the local Health Department for the population as a whole is reassuring about the need to not yet close schools or large events in our area.  https://www.myclallamcounty.com/2020/03/10/clallam-health-officer-says-covid-19-shouldnt-close-schools-of-events-locally-yet/
However, our membership is not school-age or even “average” working age.  The health officer admits that  those with underlying health conditions should exercise caution about possible exposure to Covid19. CDC and NIH are bluntly saying today that our age-group should avoid travel and large meetings.  Those of us who are over age 60 and often have multiple health issues must be especially careful. We simply do not know what the local situation will be in terms of hard evidence of Covid19 presence by the end of March but it is unlikely to remain constant with today’s conditions. We must make community announcements now about cancellation of any meetings and therefore we are cancelling the March meeting.
 
We will continue to assess the situation for April and urge you each to take personal care as the situation develops

     The Gardiner Community Center is located at 980 Old Gardiner Road Sequim.   The GCC is located 10 miles east of downtown Sequim on RT 101.   The easiest way to get there is take a left off of RT 101 that is right after the left turn lane going to Diamond Pt. Rd, which will be the second left turn center lane and take a left onto Old Gardiner Rd.   Go down Old Gardiner Rd & the GCC is on the right.   Park in the upper lot and use the front entrance.   Please park in the designated parking spaces only, if all the spaces are full, please use the church parking lot next door for overflow parking.



Our club is always looking for donated items to be used in the monthly "raffle" & "wood" for the wood auction. All of these proceeds go directly to the club to help keep our yearly  membership fees at a reasonable rate & to promote  club activities & woodturning .
