September 13 Chapter Meeting will be VIRTUAL by ZOOM

The increase in Delta Covid cases and the significant health problems caused by this virus, especially in unvaccinated people has prompted the PWWTU Board to cancel the in-person meeting scheduled for Christ Church and substitute a ZOOM conference. Check your email for the zoom link.

September Board Meeting summary

The PWWTU Board met by zoom on September 2, 2021. The draft minutes are posted on the Officer’s Quarter tab. The Board approved a new policy that deals with administration procedures for grants. The Board approved accepting a “no strings” donation of $25,000 from Equitrans, a local pipeline company whose employees selected PWWTU as a recipient of community action funding. The Board decided to require masks at the upcoming September 13 in-person meeting at Christ Church in part due to concerns by our speaker. Two new Trout in the Classroom sites will be funded this year.
