The PPL Material M.A. was presented, explained and voted on. It was overwhelmingly rejected; we will be requesting dates to meet and discuss the issues.
As Covid-19 appears to be showing an upward trend in many of our areas it is very important to take it seriously and keep protecting ourselves and others by wearing masks, sanitizing hands, tools, equipment, etc.
Stay safe, stay healthy!
President Frank E.G.
