Greeting to all of the OGS Family
Your OGS board is working hard to keep OGS afloat during this pandemic. When this crisis began the board developed and is now implementing the OGS Sustain and Recovery Plan. OGS is still in the sustain portion of our response and will be until we can get back to whatever our normal will be after COVID.
I am so proud of the OGS Board for being forward thinking. In 2019, the OGS Board developed a plan and purchased a subscription that allows OGS to do events online. This has allowed OGS to continue with monthly membership meetings with great speakers and informative topics.
OGS has been able to continue with classes and workshops online. We realize this is not as satisfying as us all being able to meet and visit, but the safety of our members and volunteers has been the driving force for the decisions we have made to date.
There are many exciting events now through the balance of 2020. These are all online and can be viewed from the safety and comfort of your home. These events are some of the top in the country and also assists OGS with much needed funding to keep us afloat.
