|VIRTUAL GRANT HALL (VGH)
First of all, thanks to the eleven (11) of you who responded to the survey on
best days/times to have our Virtual Grant Hall (VGH) video conferences. In an
ideal world, there would have been a clear-cut preference, but as with all
activities subject to the whims and foibles of man, there was not. Consider,
too, the confusing responses to the not-so-confusing questions.....
Q. "What days ARE NOT good for you.....?"
A. Thursday, All Days are Good.
Q. "Is 7:00PM Eastern a good start time.....?"
A. No, (but) 7:00 or 8:00 (PM) start times are good.
The vaccine roll out has started, and soon (hopefully) this pandemic will be all
but a (bad) memory. I hope everyone is healthy and finding new and creative
ways to avoid your spouses while living in the same house.
So, the above responses lead me to propose a mid-week (rather than a Sunday
evening) VGH as our first in 2021 as follows:

The Mayor of Canfield, Ohio - where your humble web master resides - is a
Naval Academy grad. Last November, he organized a Canfield COVID Defense
Task Force, and asked me, along with a couple of dozen other community
leaders, to participate. Following is a link to a Public Service Announcement
we made in an effort to play off the Army/Navy rivalry:
