The BUM luncheon will be Monday 9/14/2020 at noon at the usual venue Jabby Joes Island Ave Mckees Rocks. I called Jabby Joe’s regarding the Bum o’ the Month luncheon and Sue says they’re open with limited capacity.   The max she can put in one group with tables put together is eight.   More than that would have to be at separate tables or outside.

For the  Chapter 6 QCWA members, the Fall quarterly meeting has been canceled, and the scheduling of the Winter meeting will be determined later in the year.
