Special President’s Message – March 16, 2020
General Membership Meeting on April 7th is Cancelled

All Small Group/Social Activity Groups Encouraged to Cancel or Postpone

Efforts to mitigate the impact and transmission of the COVID-19, Coronavirus is everyone’s responsibility. As such, Newcomers, following the Center for Disease Control’s ( mitigation recommendations for COVID-19, is cancelling April’s General Meeting. Newcomer’s Club also encourages all of our small group/Social Activity Groups to consider cancelling or postponing their activities through the month of April.

At this time, the last general meeting for May 5 th , that falls a few days short of CDC’s recommended 8 week ‘social distancing pause’, and the scheduled ‘Parrot heads in Paradise Party’, scheduled for Friday, May 8 th , at Keowee Key’s Club, on the patio, have not been cancelled. If, the CDC, SCDHEC, Federal, State, or Local government continues to recommend ‘social distancing of groups larger than 50’, then these events may possibly need to be cancelled. We’ll know more once we get closer to these two event dates. I would like to note that there is no risk in registering for the ‘Paradise Party’. All registration fees for this party will be fully refunded in the event it does have to be cancelled.

In closing, please take proper and reasonable precautions.  Guidance for individuals and groups, on how to respond and mitigate your exposure to this new Coronavirus, can be found at: and Lets all do our part to reduce the impact of this global challenge.

Thank you for your continued participation in Newcomers.

Stay informed and stay well,

                      Mike and Mickey Bladel, Co-Presidents
