With the Governor’s orders restricting in-person gatherings, we have unfortunately had to cancel our traditional August General Meeting scheduled for Saturday, August 22 at the Firehouse.
But as many other organizations have done, we’re adapting to current conditions and have video recorded the meeting for you to view at your convenience — with the idea of maintaining as much of the content and flavor you’ve come to expect from these meetings. See the video #1 below.
This also gives us the opportunity to expand on the information-sharing part of our mission. Below you’ll also find two filmed interviews addressing very important and current issues in Surf City.
