Update From EHQ NCO’s Mess


Important Update from the NCO’s Mess (EHQ) [Includes info on AGM reimbursements]

Good day,

The NCO’s Mess Executive held a teleconference this past week and we would like to provide you with an update on Mess operations in light of Covid-19.

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Summer Steak and Lobster, and at this time, all other events scheduled for 2020 will be on hold indefinitely, pending changes in the provincial and federal social distancing directives; In the fall, we will revisit the possibility of holding a Breakfast with Santa and Levee during December.

We have explored options to host an teleconference or video AGM, but based on the size of our membership and other logistical issues, we have decided it is best to simply postpone. Your existing executive is committed to remaining in care-taking mode until we are able to host an in-person AGM either later in the year or the for the new fiscal.

In regards to the 2020 AGM originally scheduled for this April:

·         If we are unable to meet this year, the 10 bursaries we would have drawn this year will be held over and drawn in addition to next year’s quota at our next AGM;

·         If you already paid for dinner by cheque, note that we have not deposited your payment and will destroy the cheque;

·         If you already paid by e-transfer, please email us with your full name, amount you paid, and personal email so we can confirm our records and refund you.

Thank you for your ongoing participation the E Division NCO’s Mess. We are looking forward to the next time we can gather and connect.

Be safe and stay healthy,

 Your Mess Executive
