    Dear Councilors,

    Given the quickly changing nature of our realities that we are in right now, I am going to cancel our Wednesday session on Forward Together. I know that many of us and our institutions are struggling with difficult decisions and many also will likely now be unable to attend. I would like to re-schedule this session for later in the Spring when (hopefully) things have returned more to normal, we are in new routines, and we can give our full attention and focus to the work of Council and what it may look like in the future.

    I send my deepest gratitude to all of you for doing great work during an uncertain time. So many rely upon our institutions and I know that we all take our responsibilities to our communities very seriously and are making the best choices we can with the information we have.

    Take care of yourselves and see/talk to you all soon.

    All the best,
    Lessa
