Dear VVGMC Members, Amid the latest information coming out regarding the COVID-19 virus, it is the decision of the Board of Directors to completely close the club down through Monday, April 6th at which time we will re-evaluate the status of the virus. There will be no workshop days, instructor days or other meetings until that time. Additionally, there will be no admittance to the building until it has been cleaned and sanitized. We are doing this based on CDC and other governmental recommendations. The safety of our members and their families are our primary concern at this time and feel this is what we must do as our part to slow down the virus. Please do your part as recommended and above everything, use wisdom and be cautiously optimistic about this. The newsletter will be out next week via email and posted online. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call or send a text message to 909-234-5533. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all until we meet again. Dwayna Barron President
