**At this time we don’t know when the “stay at home” directive will be lifted. We hope to be able to hold the 2020 Fall Retreat October 15 - 18. In order to move forward with planning, we would like each participant to complete a registration form and pay a $75 deposit so that we know how many to plan for on the scheduled dates. A decision will be made by October 1st about going forward with retreat and the balance due will then be collected from each participant. Call Treasurer Tracey Dunlap to pay via debt or credit card. See Roster for her contact information. Checks for the $75.00 deposit to reserve your spot should be made payable to NWQ’s and mailed to: Barbara Mason, 17007 SE Tong Rd, Damascus OR 97089-8880
