As our communities strive to flatten the curve and mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control is recommending no gatherings of more than 50 people, nationwide, for the next eight weeks. Governor Mills has issued similar guidance for Maine, with a recommendation to cancel all gatherings of more than 50 people, or more than 10 people if seniors are in attendance. We have decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Meeting of Friends of Baxter State Park, which was scheduled for Saturday, April 4 in Augusta. Please share this news with any friends or family members who were planning to attend the meeting, especially those who may not have internet access. Our thoughts and best wishes are with each of you. Let's all wash our hands, stay safe, and look out for each other.
