Sand Lake Seniors Club Meeting
SAND LAKE – Unless the sky falls on us, the Sand Lake Seniors Club will be having a September 10th meeting at Noon in the Pavilion at the VFW Post 7466, Poestenkill, located near the Poestenkill Elementary School. There are picnic tables in the Pavilion and we will be able to use the bathrooms there. If anyone is not comfortable sitting at a picnic table, please bring your lawn chair. Everyone is to bring their own lunch and drink. Desserts will be provided that can be held in your hand or on a napkin, such as cookies. We don’t know what the ‘rules’ will be by September but since we are all considered to be at risk, we will need you to bring your own masks and hand sanitizers and social distance. This is the world we currently live in. Sign-in sheets will be there and required. You can contact me or any other board member if you have any thoughts or concerns on this meeting. Thank you and I can’t wait to see you there. Sandy Daus, President
