SPNN Annual Celebration!
Hey friends! We're looking forward to seeing you next Tuesday right here at SPNN. We're excited to welcome you back into our space to have some fellowship (and cake), reconnect with this community, and hear about the good work we've been up to since we last saw you.
We are monitoring COVID trends and will have more specific guidance on precautions as we get closer to the event. For now, know that we will masks available and we will open doors as we can to improve ventilation. We installed ionizers two years ago to help scrub the air as it goes through our HVAC system as well and we'll do our best to keep the program short and sweet.
