Forum meetings suspended:
The Forum last met on March 10, 2020. The March 17 meeting was cancelled, and thereafter both local and state directives have been issued to minimize group meetings where the coronavirus could spread. No date has been set yet for resumption of the Forum.
Notice of the next Forum meeting will be issued by e-mail and on the front of this website. If you are not subscribed to the Forum’s e-mail, feel free to consider doing so. One message, generally Sunday evening, normally announces Tuesday’s speakers. As soon after the Tuesday meeting as possible, a second e-mail collates announcements made from the Forum floor or sent in via e-mail. The Tuesday announcements are updated at the bottom of Sunday’s e-mail. Click here to sign up.

MANY, MANY THANKS, for all your patience and understanding during this communicating and organizing process. Everyone please follow these instructions for everything to flow smoothly.
Have something PURPLE visible on your vehicle so you can be recognized easily by law enforcement. We will be on a very busy street, North Tryon Street, also known as Hwy. 29. Everyone must enter from this street.
Coming south on Hwy. 29, turn right on J.W. Clay Boulevard. Coming north past the hospital, turn left onto J.W. Clay Boulevard.
Once on J.W. Clay, follow officers’ directions but here’s the general route. Continue through (1) stop light to Doug Mayes. Turn right on Doug Mayes. Make an immediate right onto Glenwater and into the University Place facility on the right.
After greeting Sarah, continue to the back exit and turn left onto Glenwater Drive and follow back around to Doug Mayes. Turn left on Doug Mayes and then right on J.W. Clay Boulevard. Proceed to W.T. Harris Boulevard, where you may go left or right on Harris.
GOOD NEWS: We’ve been advised that Sarah will be outside, weather permitting.
We’ll allow a minute or two to say hello to her, and then ask you to move on. As of today, we have 50 vehicles that’ll come through. No one can get out of their vehicle. Some people have time restraints and will be allowed to go through first. Remember to let me know of your constraints and I’ll advise the officers to get you in the line first.
Because of COVID-19, we’ll have drop baskets for any tokens of appreciation. Also, we’d like for everyone to have a business card or a 3×5 index card with your contact information on it so we can follow-up with an appropriate THANK YOU. Please list the names of all passengers in your vehicle on your card.
Please call me for any additional needs. I am at 704-398-8399 or e-mail [email protected] My cell is 704-582-1579.
