Thursday October 8th - Sunday October 11th 2020
2020 Clan Munro Gathering
Ridgedale, Missouri

Dear Clan Munro Member,

The planned gathering of Clan Munro USA members in Missouri from October 8 to 11, 2020 has been cancelled. The Board of Directors voted to cancel the physical gathering this year due to the extensive spread of the COVID-19 virus in the ongoing national emergency. We had hoped that events would unfold such that our plans could continue with a chance of good attendance. Current realities do not support that hope. The health, safety and welfare of our members must take priority.

Our Annual General Meeting will be held using Internet tools at approximately the same date and time as previously announced. Further information will be provided with instructions on how to participate at a later date. If you have already made a reservation please call the resort and email Barbara Cantrell to cancel as soon as you are able.
