A Few Rules for Summer

Summer is here and so is the official break for Newcomers.  While we won’t be planning our usual array of fun activities, there are some things that will continue throughout the summer, like Book Club, Bunco, and playgroups.

We want to make sure that the activities that will continue are as safe as possible for all participants, so we have a few things to ask of our members moving forward: 

  1. Please RSVP to every event you attend so that we know who to contact in the event a member becomes ill after. 
  2. Please change your RSVP from the website to NO as soon as possible when you cannot attend an event. 
  3. Please do not attend an event if you or someone in your house does not feel well. This includes coughing, sneezing, fever, etc. 
  4. Please contact a member of the board if you get sick after attending an event so that we can notify everyone in attendance.

These small things can help us all stay safe and make the most of the summer!

Support local Businesses

We encourage everyone in the community to shop and support local businesses during this crisis.

Many neighborhood restaurants have taken the necessary precautions in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

In addition to restaurants offering delivery and curbside pickup for food, there are local shops also offering these services for items to  purchase that can make great gifts and provide entertainment while sheltering at home.

Here are some local businesses we encourage members to support. Please feel free to share  other local business in the comments on the post on our webpage or in our private Facebook group. We can get through this together while support our community and neighbors. This is also a great way for those very new newcomers to learn some of our local attractions!

Please, as you visit these businesses, let them know that you are with the Upper St Clair Newcomers’ Club. We don’t expect anyone to follow these suggestions daily, but if you could please choose a day or two, or even create your own schedule, please help our local businesses in these hard times
