PACE Weekly Coffee Chat

Join us every Wednesday from 10:00 - 10:30am for a PACE Coffee Chat. In an effort to foster fellowship among our membership in a climate of social distancing, I am opening up a virtual coffee chat to our membership every Wednesday at 10:00AM until we are able to meet again in person. At least one board member will be present at each meeting to discuss any PACE activities or updates, but no formal actions will be taken in accordance with our bylaws.  Please contact Vice President Tom Mulvaney at at MulvaneyT@townoflakehamilton.com for login information.

Next PACE Training

This is just a friendly reminder that there will be no PACE meeting in November due to Veteran’s day. On this day, we are in remembrance of individuals who currently serve or have served the country that ultimately make the biggest sacrifice. A huge thank you to your loved ones and family members who provide service.

In addition, our fellow PACE member Tonya Long needs our help by just completing this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/275TP2Y. Congratulations Tonya on being a step closer in obtaining your Bachelor’s degree!
