Dear Fellow International Neighbors Women:
I hope you all were able to come through the terrible pandemic without too much stress. I know you are looking forward to meeting in person again as much as I am. As we begin moving toward more in-person small group meetings, I have a sense of hope and pride because, throughout the pandemic, members of our IN community remained engaged with one another outdoors in winter and through the use of technology. I know we all look forward to being able to gather again in person for International Days. As for what lies ahead I would like to share some of our plans for 2021.
With optimism, I anticipate International Neighbors will hold in-person International Days in October, or November. While this may not be a complete return to our International Day celebrations of previous years, we are determined to honor our members with a more personal, traditional approach than was possible in 2020. Watch for more details in mid-September as our planning moves forward.
I recognize the many difficulties the past year presented to us. The year 2020 will long be remembered as one of the most arduous in history. As a community, we came together and rose to meet the challenges head-on––further demonstrating the extraordinary resilience, strength, and determination of IN women. Whatever lies ahead in the year to come, I know we will thrive and look forward to all we will accomplish as International Neighbors, our IN Days, our groups, and the neighbors that connect with us from afar.
Please check your email – our Facebook page, and your group emails for updates as we move closer to in-person IN Days. Please, if you have not yet been vaccinated do so – it will be a requirement to attend our in-person meetings in the future.
With kindest regards and optimism,
Andra Bostian Ferguson – President, International Neighbors
COVID-19 Update: October 18th, 2021
All participants are required to wear a mask and be fully vaccinated to attend in-person International Neighbors events. Children that are too young to be vaccinated can attend the events, with a vaccinated adult, provided they wear a mask.
If you have not already gotten your flu shot this year, please get one now. You don’t want to risk getting flu and COVID-19 and you don’t want to risk spreading it to anybody else. Getting a flu shot does not cause you to get the flu. It’s very safe.
Message from the Department of Health and Human Services:
If you think you may have been exposed to someone you can get a rapid test. You do not have to have ANY symptoms just check the box that asks if you have been around someone that may have covid19.
CVS is offering free drive-thru testing at two Ann Arbor locations (2100 W. Stadium Blvd. and 1700 S. Industrial Highway) for people with symptoms, as well as asymptomatic workers and asymptomatic individuals who have been exposed to a known case of COVID-19. 1-866-389-2727
