THE BACK STORY
The last time the Mentor ASL Coffee Social was held in person was February 8, 2020. 16 months ago.
The day before our March event, Starbucks cancelled all group events due to COVID-19.
The day after (what would have been) our March event, Governor DeWine ordered all restaurants to close to in-person dining.
AND THEN …
We had no clue things would last as long as they did. But we just had to follow the rules and play it safe – just like everyone all over the world.
After a couple of months, we realized this was not going to be short-term, so we decided to move all of our ASL Coffee Socials to the Zoom platform.
Many of us had not even heard of Zoom before COVID-19, but we rolled with it and became proficient in order to keep up with our need to socialize safely.
AND NOW (FINALLY … PAH)!
Yesterday we received the “all clear” from our partners at Starbucks / Mentor-Reynolds. We couldn’t be more excited to return to Starbucks in person. We hope you are just as excited, and we look forward to seeing you when you feel it is safe for you to do so.
At least through July, our Willoughby ASL Coffee Social will remain virtual on Zoom for those that prefer an online option. We will make an announcement when this changes.
We expect another announcement to be released in the coming weeks.
