A message to members states:
"Very reluctantly we have decided, given the current situation with the new Covid infection rate, that we should postpone the remaining five lectures of the 2021 / 2022 Season. Some of our speakers have expressed reservations about attending in-person meetings and we must respect their concerns.
Following discussions, we feel that the best course of action will be to postpone the lectures planned for January to March, and incorporate them into the next season beginning in October. The speakers have all indicated their willingness to re-schedule, so we will still be able to hear and enjoy their knowledge and enthusiasm for their respective subjects. We did consider extending the season into the Spring / early Summer, but quite honestly, the uncertainty of the situation would have made the administration of notifying the membership of postponement or cancellation of lectures at short notice cumbersome and difficult."
