  We were really optimistic when writing the May newsletter that things would be returning to normal by June. BOY, WERE WE WRONG. There won’t be any optimism this month. Lots of hope that things will improve by the end of the month, but we’re not expecting many of our planned activities for June to actually take place.                                  There is the positive point that most official lockdowns are ending and there are plans for a gradual return to doing things we haven’t been able to do for months now. However, it certainly appears that a return to anything resembling “normal” is somewhere in the future. At this point, no one knows when.                                                        As can be seen in the “June Events” section above it seems unlikely our breakfast and dinner rides will take place and both the chapter and district events planned for later in the month have already been cancelled. About the only June event which appears to have much chance of happening is the Social on the 26th. That, of course is also dependent on what meeting rules the city of Oak Creek has in place by then. As has been the case for several months now, we won’t know what we can do until the “powers that be” tell us what they will allow.  In the meantime, stay well, try to keep from going stir crazy, and know that we’re thinking of you and wishing you well.                                          We will be sending out the information on the 2020 Chapter G Circle Tour very soon, so the members can have places to go where “social distancing” isn’t a problem now that the weather is finally good.                                                                                                                  Rich & Sharon Winkler – Chapter G directors
