Howzit Region 7!!!

It’s already February and it’s supposed to be starting to warm up for everyone.  But, I guess Mother Nature is not ready to help everyone out.  I hope that everyone is making it through this awful cold spell that is gripping so much of you.  It’s all relative, but I’m not going to complain about how cold it is in Hawaii when I see the record cold temperatures that some of you are experiencing.  Please stay warm and safe.  Many of you still need to report to work despite the weather, so please drive carefully. (I wouldn’t know how to drive in that type of weather conditions.)

Hawaii is slowly starting to relax some of rules for visitors to our state, but it’s not the same…  We have one of the lowest Covid-19 infection rates in the nation and to maintain that status, it will continue to be stricter.  We live on islands in the middle of a huge ocean and resources are not as easy to acquire.  But the visitors are not always following the rules set by the state.  We want your business but we need ALL visitors to abide by the rules.  The amount of visitors arriving daily will probably take years to return pre-pandemic totals. 

Stay vigilant with the wave of variations of Covid-19 spreading around the United States and the rest of the world.  Ensure that you’re protecting yourselves to the fullest.  Stay safe and take care!!!

As I have said before, please protect yourselves and continue to stay safe.  We don’t need people in our ASATT Ohana contracting Covid-19.  Don’t let your guard down, stay vigilant, and aware. We’re all in this together…

Meetings for Region 7…

Because of the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic, we need to look at having virtual meetings.  But, I would still like to have face to face meetings too.  I need your input and assistance.  If you have any speaker or sponsor willing to present a virtual lecture please contact me ASAP.  I want to start coordinating at least a couple of meetings soon. 

ASATT is still looking to hold the Annual Meeting in Fort Worth, Texas in 2021.

PLEASE BE SAFE AND PROTECT YOURSELVES…

Aloha,

Delbert
