PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE NOVEMBER 2021

With another variant of COVID rising and possibly a third one com-ing, your Board is faced with a very tough deci-sion each month. Do we hold in-person meetings or post-pone them until things settle down?
Many of your fellow members favor freedom of choice as to whether to get the vaccine. Many other members advocate that a vaccine is necessary and want assurance that attendees are vaccinated and show proof or a COVID free test 72 hoursprior to the meeting.

Several of my friends in PebbleCreek have gotten COVID even though they were fully vaccinated –- some of them had relatively mild symptoms while others had more serious effects.
Another one of my friends and his wife attended the wedding of a grandnephew in Chicago in early August. There were six-teen family members there, five of whom had been vaccinated.
One family member came to the wedding with known symp-toms and spread the virus. The five who had been vaccinated did not get the virus. The eleven who had not been vac-cinated all got the virus and my friend’s two younger brothers (both in late 70’s) who had not been vaccinated, got the virus and died. I am sure you may have heard similar stories.I relate all the above because it plays a role in our decision making and we take any decision very seriously. This is primarily because our member-ship is generally older and more vulnerable, and we want to proceed with caution.

To make the best decision possible, it was decided to have the Board vote each month on what action to take. To assist in the decision making, we took an in-formal poll of about 50 mem-bers and spouses and provided the results to the Board last month.  We used that input, current CDC guidelines, and the Ari-zona Department of Health Services recommendations as we voted on holding the No-vember dinner meeting.
We welcome your input and always welcome your attendance at your Board
