      Brothers and Sisters:

      Due to the increased Covid numbers and stay at home advisory order in Lucas county along with Ohio, the membership meeting for December 7, with the scheduled wage allocation, has been cancelled. It was scheduled to be held at premier.

      We have also moved to cancel the December 21 meeting as well.

      We will go back to the EBoard taking care of all regular business.

      It’s a sad day to cancel the annual member's Christmas party but we need to concentrate on staying healthy.

      Please stay healthy and safe out there through these challenging times.

      Thanks Roy B. Grosswiler
