The Landlovers Board voted unanimously on March 16 to suspend all further Landlovers events for the rest of the fiscal year, ending May 31. Our decision was based on concern for our membership and the guidelines stated by the CDC.
"CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene, and
Because Landlovers cannot guarantee that people will adhere to the guidelines for protecting others, we decided to err on the side of caution. We have had a terrific year, and we want to make sure that all of our stakeholders and team members stay safe. I cannot thank you enough for your dedication to Landlovers this year. I want to especially thank Susan Danner, Rib Rubin, Maureen Mezei, Chris Lanigan and the hundreds of people who made our fundraisers so successful this year.
