NWRBX’s Annual Casino Night Cancelled for 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of our annual casino night which was to be held Friday, February 26 at Florian Gardens. At our Annual Meeting last Wednesday evening our board thoroughly discussed the event. One of our largest hurdles was that our beloved Telephone Pioneers who are all retired employees of AT&T (and retired for a number of years, making most of them in their eighties) did not wish to volunteer to help us out this year. Some of our board members contacted other organizations and many of them had the same viewpoint regarding gathering the members of their organizations. This, of course, puts us in a tough position. The more we discussed ways of hosting this event this year, the more reasons were gathered not to. Finally, after much discussion, a motion was made to cancel Casino Night for 2021, the motion was seconded and passed unanimously. Part of our contract with Florian Garden allows us to postpone our event for one year if we cancel because of COVID-19 so we have re-scheduled for Friday, February 25, 2022. Pencil us in!
In the meantime, our board members are working on something new for this year – not exactly Casino Night-fun, but something fun! We will let you know all of the details when we know more.
