EIOLT President Note

As I write this brief note, I am observing the stay-at-home strategy to prevent the corona virus from spreading, and I hope every one of you reading this is healthy and managing well.  We are all aware of the negative effects this health crisis has created for individuals and businesses and our hearts go out to each of you.  Although EIOLT will be impacted by these events also, I want to assure our supporters that we are taking the necessary steps to ensure we are able to continue pursuing our organization’s mission.  

Our office is closed until further notice, and staff members are working from home.  Given the current situation, we are rescheduling our June Auction and Party fundraiser to August 15.  Our events are not only an enjoyable way to celebrate with you, but are also critically important to the economics of EIOLT.  If all goes well over the next two months, we will be able to stay on track to bring you all the wonderful programs and activities that your support helps us offer to our youth and adults each year. 

I know you are also likely feeling financial, physical or emotional impacts and we want you to know if there is anything we can do for you at this time, or if there is any need you may have with which we might be able to help you right now, you may email or call us and we will do everything we can to help.   We also sincerely hope that if you are in a position to continue your support of our work, you will help EIOLT continue preserving and protecting our island’s natural resources and heritage.  I look forward to getting together at future events once this crisis has passed.  In the meantime, I wish good health to each of you and your families.

Sidney Gauthreaux,
President
