COVID-19 Response

Body: 

Fellow NBARC members, effective tomorrow (Tuesday Mar 17th) Tim Hortons' is closing their dining areas, and will only be serving take out customers only, so Clam Soup Fridays are suspended until normal counter service resumes.
At this time it would also seem prudent to cancel our April 8th regular monthly meeting as well.
If anything comes up, or the situation changes, a bulletin will be distributed.
There has been no activation of ARES for any COVID-19 issue at any level of government (Municipal, Provincial or Federal) at this time.
Play radio and stay safe.
