We want to let you know that we miss you and we are working hard to make sure the international neighbors are able to welcome new members and continue communicating and meeting with our current members. We cannot meet in big groups yet, and most likely will not meet this year until we have a vaccine or a medication that cures COVID-19. Many of our small groups are meeting outdoors while following social distancing guidelines. Each IN group leader is in charge of how their groups meet – whether in person or via Zoom.

In the meantime, we want to communicate with you through our newsletter, Facebook group, Zoom meetings, videos and emails. Please look for the August newsletter that will direct you about our specific groups and how they intend to meet and stay in touch with you. We will be following the governor’s State of Michigan guidelines that will let us know when we can again meet in person in larger groups. Until then please know we miss your beautiful faces and incredible spirits. We look forward to the time when we can see you in person again at our monthly IN days, hug each other, enjoy our fabulous international foods, and dance together.

Thank you so much for your confidence in us and for remaining members of international neighbors.

Your President,

Andra Bostian Ferguson
