Yes, you read that correctly... meetings is plural! Since COVID vaccinations are becoming more widespread, the IPMS Richmond E-board feels comfortable in outlining the next four meetings.
April 12: This will be an online meeting held via Jitsi. On an iPad, Chrome, or other tablet, iPhone or Android phone, just go to your app store and search for the JITSI Meet app. Download the app and you are pretty much ready to go. Or you can watch from a Personal Computer or Laptop but your ability to fully participate may be limited by your equipment. On these you go to the JITSI web page. In all cases, the room is "ipmsrichmond".
May 10: An in-person meeting! We will meet at Mike's brother's restaurant for our delayed "Christmas (in May) Party." Due to COVID restrictions, attendance will be limited to IPMS Richmond members and one guest each.
June 14: A normal meeting back at the Smoketree Community Building.
July 12: Chapter Contest at the Smoketree Community Building. The theme remains "Your Birth Year" as a special category. Contestants may enter a model depicting a subject that was around or in use the year they were born. All the other contest categories will be in effect, as well.
Stay tuned for further details.
