Health and Safety Precautions

Because of COVID concerns, we are instituting some health and safety precautions:

  • In-person and virtual options available for attendees.
  • Only fully vaccinated people may attend in person.
  • Attendance will be limited to 100 people to allow for social distancing and fewer people at each table.
  • We ask that attendees wear a face covering when not seated at their tables.
  • The breakfast will be family style at each table instead of a self-serve buffet.
  • If you feel unwell the day of the breakfast or are uncomfortable with these precautions, please do not attend in person.
  • An online link will be shared via email with those who prefer to attend virtually.
  • If it is determined that having an in-person event is not viable because of government regulations or health restrictions, the event will be held completely virtually.

We’re excited to celebrate and share our plans for the future with you!
