Still Home Distancing
As mentioned in the April bulletin, the May meeting and field trip are
cancelled. These cancellations are a direct result of the continuing Covid-19
pandemic. We join other organizations in the effort to slow the spread of this
terrible virus and protect our members. We remain hopeful that the September
meeting will be held as usual at U.C. We also anticipate holding our auction
during that meeting. If social distancing is still in play or if U.C. is closed
or restricting meetings we’ll have to alter our plans. We’ll let you know.

As I write this, states are beginning to open things back up but pay
attention to any further stay at home orders issued by the state. Here in Ohio,
although the stay at home order has been relaxed, it is still being recommended
that people over 65 and those in “at risk” categories remain sheltered in place.
Fossil collecting on your own may be allowable but do watch out for travel
restrictions across state lines. Cleaning, organizing and curating your
collection at home until the Covid-19 situation is resolved remains a good
option and a number of us are doing just that.
So, stay safe, stay at
home and follow the guidelines given by the state and federal government. Do not
take this lightly. This is not a drill. It is the real thing.
Lots of interesting and informative articles can be found in the full bulletin
that is emailed and/or snail-mailed to dues-paying members.
