Since the virus has arrived in Haverhill, our organization has been watching the news and monitoring the situation closely, especially since our fundraising dinner is scheduled to take place in the middle of next month. No one knows when or how soon the epidemic will start to abate but it is safe to assume that we will still not be out of the woods by mid-April.
As you are aware, many schools and offices have been closed, airlines have cancelled flights, people have been asked to self-quarantine (including a member of our board), and various events have been either cancelled or postponed.
We, at Asperger Works, believe that your safety and health is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we decided to follow the CDC's newest recommendation -
no gathering of 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks - and postpone the Dinner of Hope to a later, safer date.
If you have already bought your tickets, we thank you and want you to know that they will be honored at the rescheduled date. If you haven't purchased them yet, you can still do so until the new date of our event.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support and your patience in this matter.
We will send you updates as soon as they become available.
All of us at Asperger Works hope that you stay safe and healthy in the weeks and months ahead.
