Response and Precautions During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Due to concerns over the COVID-19 Coronavirus in Franklin County and Ohio, the Forest Park Civic Association Board has decided to cancel the April meeting. Below is a list of how the FPCA will be addressing the issues of monthly meetings and the monthly publication of The Forester.
As always, please refer to the Forest Park website www.fpcivic.org and the Forest Park Facebook page www.facebook.com/fpcivic for the most up-to-date information about what is happening in your neighborhood.
- April’s FPCA meeting will be hosted online via Zoom. Details about the meeting will be posted on the website and Facebook page listed above. The decision concerning May’s meeting will be made at a later date.
- The April Forester will be an online version ONLY found on the FPCA website, here: Forester. Links will be on social media. The home delivery of The Forester will cease through the month of April, and possibly May. This may change depending on what the medical, state and municipal authorities are saying.
- Forester Stuffing for the membership drive will still have to go ahead; however, we will have to set up differently with social distancing guidelines in mind. Mike Stone will be in contact with the volunteers as to how that will all happen. Check the above websites for future information about stuffing.
If anyone in the community needs to communicate with the FPCA during this time, please use the “Contact FPCA” link on our website www.fpcivic.org/about/contact
We hope that all our members, and the entire community, stay safe and healthy during this time.
