The Board of Directors met on January 9, 2021 and in a unanimous vote, decided to postpone the Spring 2021 walks to the Fall and the Fall 2021 walks to the Spring of 2022. It was felt that the risk of contracting COVID within a group of 70 people in close contact for 3 days was too high.

We’re doing our best to follow this passage from Ephesians (5:15-17) “So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times! Don’t live carelessly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants.” An expression I learned long ago is that God gave us a brain and expects us to use it. I am sure that He does not want us to put ourselves at unnecessary risk.

The time will come when COVID will be under control and that is when we can ditch the masks, hug each other and conduct walks.

De Colores,
John Watson
Community Lay Director
