Dear S.O.S. Member,
As you are probably aware, due to the COVID-19 Virus Federal and State Authorities have closed nonessential businesses until April 30, 2020. The Board of Singles Outreach has no choice but to continue suspension of our programming until said date; at that time we will reevaluate the situation based on the information from the CDC and medical experts. Your safety is our upmost concern.
We are sending out this notice in lieu of our May 2020 newsletter, as it is still uncertain when we can resume programming. When we do get the okay to resume, we will begin by having our usual events such as Sunday Potlucks at 4:00 p.m., Tuesday Real World at 7:00 p.m. and Game night Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. We will also have our Wednesday Night Bowling and Thursday Morning Outdoorsy group.We are suspending our fourth Sunday ballroom dances for the months of May & June. We are including the names and contact information for activity leaders that host routine events for you to obtain further information.
Should programming resume in May, we would like to talk about our Memorial Day picnic. It will take place on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, Noon – 5:00 p.m. This year it will take place at The Crossings of Colonie Park, located at 580 Albany Shaker Road. We will be in the South Pavilion. As usual, we ask you to bring your own meat for grilling, and a dish to share. Admission fee will be $5.00 with a dish to pass or $10.00 without. We are hoping to make this a fun event for everyone. The park has trails for walking and/or biking, and a pond with ducks to enjoy. SOS is looking forward to providing both indoor and outdoor games for your enjoyment. We are also looking to have a D.J. to play music for your listening and dancing pleasure. Come and join in on the fun. We are also planning to have our Fourth of July and our Labor Day picnics there.
