Annual IW Memorial Service
The annual Memorial Service for IW members who passed away in 2020 will be held on Sunday, March 7, 2021.  Due to Covid virus concerns, the format will be totally different from previous years.  During the afternoon of the 7th we will have several 1/2 hour visitation sessions for those who wish to pay their respects. Masks and social distancing will be required for all attendees. Attendance at each afternoon 1/2 hours visitation session will be limited to 20 attendees. There will be an opportunity to sign up ahead of time for the visitation sessions. The final session at 6:00 pm will be a program for immediate family members only. 
During each 1/2 hours visitation in the afternoon, we will run a video remembering those we are honoring, and attendees will be encouraged to leave their written thoughts and remembrances for the families. Remembrance candles and portrait pictures of those we are honoring will be on individual tables spread throughout the club. Your condolence/remembrance messages may be left for the families on the appropriate tables. There will not be any formal program during the afternoon sessions 
More information will be forthcoming as it is developed.
