A Message from the President about COVID-19


Everyone is aware of the cautions and warnings issued by the CDC, the World Health Organization, and other medical professionals regarding the Coronavirus. In addition, the President issued a National Health Emergency, and Governor Tony Evers declared a State of Emergency in Wisconsin. The primary concern is that we do everything possible to contain and manage the spread of the disease so that it does not spread so rapidly that it overwhelms our medical facilities and medical professionals. The more we voluntarily follow the recommendations of our government and health officials, the sooner the virus will be contained, vaccines will be available, and we can return to normal. The situation changes day to day and sometimes hour to hour.  


April 1 General Meeting Cancelled
Well before the current mandates limiting group gatherings to 10 or less, the Vagabond Board of Directors decided to cancel the April 1 General Meeting. It was announced in an email sent to all Vagabond members. The Board felt that the safety and peace of mind of our members is paramount.  


I have sent a series of 3 emails notifying members of Vagabond event cancellations. Any events taking place indoors with 10 or more participants are prohibited under current government mandates. In this issue of the Life newsletter we have attempted to remove events that have been cancelled. However, this being a printed document prepared well before distribution, changes may have occurred. If you have questions about an event, please contact the event leader.


The good news is that summer is coming and many, many Vagabond activities are held outdoors where the social distancing recommendations can be followed, while still enjoying being with friends and getting some healthy exercise, too. So, look through this newsletter issue and register for these great summer events.


More good news is that the Sunday hikes will continue to take place. Exercise is an important part of maintaining a strong, healthy immune system. What better way to get some fresh air and exercise with Vagabond friends while still following recommended social distancing guidelines. See inside for more details about the weekly Sunday hikes.


As more information is available, we will keep you updated. Thanks to all of you for your understanding and for responsibly following social distancing guidelines. It is a help to all of us to curtail the spread of COVID-19. Much of this is inconvenient and disappointing, but we will get through it.


Thank you,
Linda Horn
