HACS NEWS FOR MEMBERS
Our monthly shows are all held at Evergreen Hall in downtown Chilliwack. We will not be able to resume our shows until the City of Chilliwack re-opens Evergreen Hall for public events. That will not happen until Dr. Henry removes the 50 person limit on public events in BC. Hopefully we will soon have a vaccine for Covid-19.
Please do not renew your membership this year. We only had two shows in 2020, Jan. and Feb. If you renewed your membership for 2020 it will be valid for 2021 at no extra charge.
PLEASE do not try and renew your membership by Mail as our supplies are all locked up and we have no means of mailing out membership cards at this time.
Bob Patrick has taken over the Newsletter from Ron Tyson. Bob will be posting a Newsletter on the Website in the near future. Unfortunately we will not be printing up hard-copies of the Newsletter for mailing purposes until Covid-19 has run its course and we once again are able to host our gun shows at Evergreen Hall.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
As our 2 day show in March 2020 was cancelled we were unable to have our AGM following Day 1. of the 2 day show. Therefore the current Executive as elected at the AGM in 2019 will remain in effect until we are once again able to hold an Election of Officers at the next 2 day Annual show which will be in March of 2021.
ANNUAL DONATIONS TO CHILDREN’S CHARITIES
2020 is going to be a tough year for HACS. We all really miss the shows and the folks who attend the shows. Our big fund raising show is the annual March show. We normally donate approx. $30,000 to children’s charities. We also donate to various organizations who support our right to legally own firearms in Canada. Our donations will be down considerably this year as the March show was cancelled due to Covid-19.
