June BBQ update

Hello Deaf* Community and interpreters:

The annual VtRID Deaf* Community Day event for June 27, 2020 is CANCELLED because of …


– many deaf* community members and interpreters did not want to meet up because of concern that people will get COVID-19

– Governor Scott does not permit groups of more than 25 people

We are sad about this cancellation.  Hopefully that coronavirus will be gone or a vaccine will be ready so we can meet up again in June 2021!  

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email (vtridbbq@gmail.com) or VP (802-858-4069).  

Stay healthy!  Have a good year!  🙂

Dear members,
Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we learn the processes of this organization. 
The Executive Committee met on Thursday 6/11 to discuss the following:

1. The outcome of our poll about the June 27th meeting: The picnic will be cancelled this year because of COVID-19 social distancing restrictions-The google poll results were: out of 16 responses–78% voted for an online meeting. The meeting will be held June 27th at 1:30 PM. I will send out a zoom link soon–keep an eye out!

2. John Pirone shared with us the plans for the VTAD Deaf community survey. That survey will be sent out to Deaf community members in the next couple of days and John will share out about the process at the June 27th meeting.
