ASNJ MEETING CANCELLATION

SATURDAY MEETING CANCELLATION - JANUARY 21
A Note from ASNJ's Webmaster,
There is a Women's March on Trenton scheduled for January 21 between 10AM and 1PM. According to the event facebook page, there are 1,500 people confirmed attendees and an additional 2,800 who may attend. Such high attendance will likely restrict parking for those planning to attend our meeting this weekend. We are also concerned about traffic volume near the NJ State Museum. For these reasons, we have decided to cancel the meeting. We are still discussing the possibility of re-scheduling this event. We apologize for the last minute notice and hope that this has not caused you a great inconvenience. Please stay tuned for further details.
Thank you!
Tabitha
