THE ADVENTURERS’ CLUB OF HONOLULU
April to June 2021 Newsletter
PRESIDENT"S MESSAGE: Aloha Adventurers!
It is hard to believe that it is more than a year since we last saw each other in person and that our April meeting will mark a year of Zoom meetings. At the March meeting of the Board, when new COVID-19 cases were very low, we were quite excited to discuss how we would resume our normal meetings. As I write this, however, the numbers are climbing again. Regardless, the factors influencing our return to our dinner meetings are the same.
First, we need to be in Tier 4 at a minimum. Next, our meeting venues need to be ready for us. Right now, none of our usual locations has opened their private dining rooms for groups. Then we must adjust things like the maximum number of people we can accept, the dinner service and make other changes that might be needed. Once all that is done, we also recognize that while some of us are vaccinated and ready to gather, others are not. To accommodate as many members as possible, we are exploring the possibility of offering both in-person and Zoom options for some meetings. Stay tuned for further updates!
I would also like to thank you for renewing your membership in the Adventurers’ Club of Honolulu. It was wonderful to see how many people continue to be interested in our meetings.
Mahalo, Carolyn Gire, President
Mahalo to Lowell Angell, who led the committee and did much of the work of revising the document, and committee members Bill Arnemann, Carolyn Gire and Judy Simon for their assistance.
