To All Austin Pond Society Members.
The City of Austin has opened up the Zilker Botanical Gardens but if you want to visit, you need to go online and register a spot as they are limiting the number of people allowed in at any given time. Access to the Clubhouse is still restricted with no availability date in sight for possibly a couple more months, and depending on the latest news on the virus, even later. Consequently, any future Austin Pond Society meetings inside the building have also been cancelled until further notice. This is a sad turn of events, not just for our Members but for all other organizations that are affected by this.
Uppermost in our minds is the safety of our Members and we don’t want to put anyone at risk by holding a physical meeting.
