Suspension of Club Activities due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The TIHAA board has made the decision to suspend all club activities until conditions warrant starting them up again. This includes lunch meetings, day trips and events, until conditions are back to normal. We will not be publishing the VIGOR newsletter this month, and until after club activities start back up. We will update the website and send emails as we gain more visibility.

The board will reevaluate the situation in the months ahead. We will use guidance from government officials and the CDC, as well as input from our club members to determine when to restart activities.

We hope that this situation will end soon and that we can truly achieve our club motto: "We Socialize Together".
