MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Like nothing we’ve ever experienced before…

A philosopher once quipped, “Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.” With uncertainty in abundance, it’s impossible to know what we’ll title this chapter in our lives. But right now it’s important to step back, take a breath, and remind each other we will get through this.

The Coronavirus and its associated illness, Covid-19, are driving uncertainty throughout the globe. Of course, this is true for WTS-LA as well. At present, we are closely following state and government guidelines. In doing so, we know only one thing is certain. When it is safe to recommence programming and events, we will. Until then, though, please remain safe, follow the news daily (but not too closely). And adhere to the safety procedures issued by government medical experts and your local physician. One thing you can do now is apply to our mentoring program as either a mentor or mentee. Obviously, we don’t know scheduling details yet, but we’d like to have the program ready to go the minute it’s safe to proceed.

Finally, if you’re not sure where to turn for help or guidance, I will include some useful links below. In the meanwhile, please stay safe, reassure young ones, and help older folks who need it. Oh, and wash your hands. I’ll be in touch again soon. Stay strong.

Lisa Karwoski, PE
