The summer is over and it’s time to try and get back together for an in-person meeting. The last time we met in person as a group was in January 2020, 19 months ago. The September chapter meeting will be held at the Mimi’s in Irvine. We were meeting at the Mimi’s in Lake Forest but it closed permanently due to impact of COVID on its business. It would be great if they reopened sometime soon. I searched high and low for another venue and it was slim pickings. The Mimi’s in Irvine has a separate room very similar to the one in Lake Forest. We have a dinner speaker scheduled to address our group. I’m hopeful that you will make an effort to support our September meeting. It would be great to see everyone again.
This month’s newsletter and website update were assembled by Bruce Deaner. Paul Sapp and his wife sold their home in Irvine and moved to Florida. Bruce kindly answered the call for a volunteer to fill the vacant position. By the way Bruce lives in Japan so this will be a good test of working virtually. We are grateful to Paul for his volunteerism and his contributions to the South Coast Chapter.
Hope this finds you all safe and healthy. Hope to see you on Tuesday, September 21st at the Mimi’s in Irvine.
