MONTHLY GATHERINGS UPDATE

MONTHLY GATHERINGS – VIA ZOOM – NEW JOINT GATHERING DATE AND TIME

Summer Gatherings by Zoom
The monthly Gatherings were held via Zoom during July and August, 2020.  We ran 4 Gatherings with 2 in July and 2 in August (North and South).  The attendance at the Gatherings was small, but very engaged!  We had a good time greeting each other and learning about what is happening in our UJAMAA GRANDMAS world.

The various committees are doing a marvellous job at keeping up the good work and finding very creative solutions to carry on during the current pandemic.  The Gatherings were inspiring.

Upcoming Gatherings in the Fall
At the August Gatherings we observed that all members could join via Zoom regardless of where they lived (North or South), and we also noticed that the Committee Chairs gave similar reports at both Gatherings.  Therefore, we are looking at a suggestion of combining the North and South Gatherings into a joint Gathering while the COVID pandemic continues.

Based on the above, we are proposing to hold the Joint Gathering on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and rotating from Morning / Afternoon / Evening/ in the hopes that more members will be able to participate via Zoom.

The first joint Zoom Gathering will be held on Sept 16, 2020 at 7:30 pm. Members check your September E-news for the Zoom link, meeting ID and passcode.

At the Sept 9, 2020 Board Meeting, the revised Dates / Times will be reviewed and approved. Once approved, the revised Dates / Times will be posted on the UJAMAA GRANDMAS website and will be included in future monthly E-News.

We are looking forward to seeing you at a future Gathering!
