Note from President Dot LaLone:

"Dear WGS members & friends, During these unprecedented times, everyone has been challenged to adjust to the new normal.

The Waterford Library will be re-opening in June with new guidelines in place for patrons. This includes the Community

Room, where we meet. Until further notice, the room will be used to disinfect books, tapes and all other

Library materials. The Library is currently studying how social distancing can be done in the building. When

the Library adopts how the new procedures will be implement using social distancing in the Community Room,

WGS Board/Appointees will be informed.

Until then, WGS Board & Appointees are exploring options to continue the monthly meetings that have

provided insights to current research options, problems & victories in research and of course socializing!

We miss all of you and hope everyone is safe.  Hope to see you soon!"
