Greetings SHAF members!
Your Board of Directors spent considerable time this summer planning for an annual membership meeting this fall, since we were unable to meet last spring. We made a lot of plans; a speaker on an interesting aspect of the MD Campaign, some great raffle items, books for sale, a battlefield walk to show you the property we just bought, etc. Unfortunately, the Washington County positivity rate for Covid 19 is over 8% and we are the second largest “hot spot” in Maryland for this disease. Under these circumstances we just could not endanger everyone’s health by having a large gathering, even in a barn!
We would like to hear from you, and to hold some kind of meeting, and are thinking about doing on-line meeting via Zoom. We could at least show you pictures of the property, maybe do an on-line silent auction of some goodies, elect a board for the coming year, etc. We propose doing this on Thursday, Sept. 30 at 7:00 p.m. We will try to keep it short, and will definitely allow time for comments, questions, etc. (If you don’t have Zoom software, it is free and safe. We will send you a link to click on, and the rest is easy.)
Our progress towards the $15,000. Matching grant for the purchase of the house on Harpers Ferry Road is going well, but we aren’t there yet. Please, if you haven’t already donated towards this purchase, please do so soon. Thank you!
We also hope to share some more good news with you soon.
