We have received word from the Bethany Retreat Center that they have been notified by their County Executive this morning that the number of COVID-19 cases has exploded in that county. The county has now implemented new regulations that go into effect immediately, which would now prevent the Retreat Center from hosting the Association’s upcoming winter retreat next weekend, January 14th-16th. Therefore, our Retreat is now cancelled. I have ordered the New York Office to refund all registrations fees for the Retreat.
We are sorry to bring you this news so late; but, these unfortunate circumstances are beyond our control. Assuredly, these new orders were done for the safety and protection of all citizens and visitors.
