Dear ECNG Members,
In light of the recent developments related to precautionary measures to contain the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and our focus on the health and safety of our members our board has made the decision to cancel the April 1st General Membership Meeting and accompanying workshop.

We are working with Kris Poor of Poorhouse Designs to reschedule her lecture and workshop for the 2020-2021 year and look forward to announcing a new date once confirmed

We will carefully be monitoring the situation and will be looking at the April Bus Trip and May meeting as well to be potentially postponed; we will keep you advised in the coming weeks.
