President’s Message – April 24, 2020

Dear Strollers,

I hope this letter finds you heathy and safe. You are regularly in our thoughts, and we send you best wishes. The board had an opportunity to meet on-line recently and we wanted to pass on some information to you.

We discussed the situation regarding the 2020 Annual General Meeting. Ideally, we would like to meet face-to-face to conduct the meeting, but we are prepared to consider alternative means of doing so, such as electronic options. The board will have a clear decision on the AGM particulars available for the membership by the end of June. As far as Stroll memberships go, they will remain in effect and will not require renewal until such time as the AGM takes place.

The board also discussed the status of the 2020 anthology. At this point there is no plan for its distribution, as we are exploring safe and practical options. We’ll keep you informed of developments.

The board will continue to convene through virtual meetings and has voted to extend the terms of directors until our 2020 AGM can happen. It is a great comfort to know that our leadership team remains steadfastly in place through this challenging time. Their commitment, ingenuity, energy and experience are invaluable assets moving ahead. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at

Yours in verse,
John Leppard
