The year 2020 is coming to an end and so it is. Goodbye 2020 !
Without wanting to paraphrase the British monarchy, it has been a horrible year in the world. As I have already told you on several occasions, the health crisis we are going through, as violent as it is unprecedented and unpredictable, has not allowed us to function as planned.
2020, we don’t regret you !
Of course, our activities are slow ! We can’t meet normally anymore and I don’t think January will allow us to do so again. No doubt we will have to wait until February… may be !
Despite everything, thanks to the management of "La Poste Epernay Saint-Martin", we were able to set up and in good conditions the temporary office concerning the opening of the Museum of Regional Archeology and Champagne Wine on November 14 ... even if the effective date of this opening is constantly postponed by the City of Epernay. Today we are talking about January 15 ... The topic, clearly promising and the quality of the stamps and souvenirs, made this temporary office a success. There is still time to place orders, but latecomers may be disappointed !
Your board of directors has taken the decision to exceptionally lower the contribution for 2021 to € 35 for adults and € 5 for young people, considering that we were not in a position to offer you all the services usually provided (at ’unwittingly !). Even when it goes down, don’t forget to pay your membership fee to our treasurer. He will be happy to hear from you !
While waiting for a more friendly meeting, the watchword is simple : take care of yourself and your relatives. This will be the best way in the long term to be able to regain our activities and our freedom of action, friendship and conviviality, all of these values which are the very essence of our association.
Happy New Year to you and your relatives.
