Update:

The potential for freezing rain or sleet on Tuesday January 16 has resulted in our cancellation of the BSH meeting scheduled that evening. The Officers and Directors feel it would be better to cancel the meeting and encourage everyone to stay safe than to expose anyone to unnecessary risks. We will attempt to reschedule the January meeting at West Gray Metropolitan Service Center but there may be no spaces available. We will advise you via email if we are able to reschedule the meeting.

The scheduled Board of Directors Meeting scheduled for Thursday, January 18, 7:00 PM remains on the schedule.
