Since April of 2021, because the State of Oregon has lifted some social gathering restrictions, we have been convening in outdoor membership meetings at Twin Creeks Park in Central Point. Changes will be updated as each month's meeting is planned. More information is available in the Events tab of the website.
Due to the Covid-19 social distancing and orders limiting group meetings, the SOAL had been conducting monthly meetings online using the Microsoft Teams Web Conferencing Meeting Platform. It is similar to using Zoom, but also has online cloud sharing applications that allow participants to view documents on the screen with other remote viewers.
Prior to 2020, we had been having our local's General Membership Meetings at the Round Table Pizza restaurant in Medford for several years. Once we can begin to reserve indoor meeting spaces that are safe for our members and their families, we will consider returning to that venue. When we did have the meetings there, we reserved the private party room and members and their families were invited to the meeting. Hopefully soon, we may be able to return to indoor, in person meetings again.
The local also has a Postal Pulse drawing each quarter. We re-started the drawing last quarter, and will continue it as long as we can still have meetings in which members can be present. Continue to turn your Postal Pulse survey forms into a steward and join us at the next membership meeting! The drawing works like this: If your name is drawn you win $100 if you are present at the meeting. If your not present, you still win $50.
