* Any message that starts with the phrase "out of an abundance of caution" is surely going to be followed by disappointing news.
* But in addition to caution, it is now critical that individual needs be made secondary to those of society. It is clear that aggressive social distancing is our primary weapon against the COVID-19 pandemic.
* Therefore the Monday, March 16 bee class is cancelled.
* A decision will be made later regarding the regularly scheduled April meeting.
