Mercer Island Class of 1971,
The reunion committee has unanimously determined it was in the best interest of the class to postpone the event scheduled for September 18th at the Mercer Island Beach Club.
Many of you have expressed concern with the Covid-19 virus and with the Delta variant on the increase, and holding the reunion. Especially for those of you who are traveling from out of town. The state has just mandated masks for all indoor events and the Beach Club sent their increased masking, food handling and social distancing requirements update yesterday. There is some expectation that the venue size will be reduced again back to 75 people from 150.
All of these ever changing mandates, concerns and issues helped us to determine that postponement was the best option.
For those of you that have registered and paid for the event, we can refund your money, or you can leave your payment with us and be registered for next summer's event.
While we are all disappointed, we know this is the correct course of action at this time.
Best regards, and see you next summer.
Norm Brown, Deb Katz, Steve Showalter, Bonnie Sanborn, Judy Chavez, Betsy Biehn, Bill Hirshberg, Brooks Simpson
