This has been such an unusual time in our history.  We try to have some semblance of order and normalcy as we adjust our masks and limit our contacts to stay healthy.  Our club has suspended activities, but our President has maintained contact, recently suggesting an outdoor meeting in the fall if the numbers of cases continue to decrease in New York State

 Life events continue despite this dreadful virus.  On July 18th of this strange year, our President Joan Long and her husband Gene Long will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.  As a surprise, club members have been asked to submit their stories about this couple to their two daughters who will collect them along with others from friends and family.  What makes this marriage unique, is that Gene served as President of our Niagara section for 6 years and has been writing our newsletter for years and is also our club photographer.   This year Joan is our section President after serving as our Secretary for years.  This couple has been not only dedicated to each other and their family but also have given generously of their time and energy to MBCA Niagara section since 1989.  Congratulations Gene and Joan Long.
