FROM THE DIRECTORS:                                                                                                                          During this year of the plague it is becoming harder and more frustrating to write a newsletter with anything positive to report. Cancellations and totally changed plans are the order of the day.                                                                                                                                                              The latest victim of the summer of cancellations is our annual Corn Roast/Picnic. Milwaukee county has closed all but a few parks to large picnics and has cancelled all reservations. Even in those few parks still open to picnics the restrictions make it virtually impossible to actually have one.                                                                                                                                                               Also our usual venue for socials remains closed to meetings, so we’re continuing to “play it by ear”.   Fortunately, our lunch and dinner rides are outside the city of Milwaukee and, at least for now, remain open for use. Our breakfast ride location for August is in the city of Milwaukee, so masks will be required when not eating, but the others are still available.  There’s no way to know when things will get better, so all we can do is keep on doing what we can and try to stay in touch with each other and enjoy each other’s company when and where it’s allowed.  Stay well and keep on keeping on.
