    The Board, at their May 28, Special Meeting of the Board, voted to further postpone, recess and continue the Special Meeting of the Membership that had previously been continued and recessed to June 3, 2020, to October 27, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Center, 110 Sweetbriar Park Road, Locust Grove, VA, because of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic and current Executive Orders and Guidelines of the Governor of Virginia, including but not limited to those limiting social distancing and prohibiting gatherings of 10 or more individuals. Let the minutes reflect that the Board takes this action to also ensure the Membership is not disenfranchised from the Referendum process because LOWA cannot safely convene the Membership.
