The KEHA Board remains committed to the health and safety of our members.  The Executive Committee has been monitoring updates from the Governor, Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control regarding COVID-19 in our state.

This weekend the Centers for Disease Control issued guidance that any gatherings of 50 or more people should be canceled or postponed for the next 8 weeks.  The KEHA State Meeting falls within that window.  Much of our membership falls in the category of being at greater risk.

Due to current guidance we have made the decision to postpone our State Meeting.  This has been made out of concern for the safety, health and well-being for all our members and communities.  We appreciate your support in this very difficult decision.

The Board is working with the Owensboro Convention Center, along with others involved, to re-schedule our meeting.  The rescheduled dates and details will be shared as soon as final. Those who have registered may let their registrations stand to be applied to the rescheduled dates or request a refund. If you would like to request a refund at this time, please email Harlene Welch at harlenewelch@gmail.com.

If you have made hotel reservations in Owensboro for the April dates, please be sure to cancel those reservations in accordance with the hotel cancellation policies. Hotel information will be updated and shared once new dates are set.

In addition on March 16th, the CDC and President issued new guidance to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people for the next 15 days.  This includes our Homemakers clubs. The KEHA Board strongly suggests that Homemaker clubs do not meet at this time and continue to monitor guidance from the CDC for the next few weeks. For additional information go to www.cdc.gov or www.kycovid19.ky.gov.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but this is best to protect our members, their families and our communities and that has to be our priority at this time.  Please feel free to contact Karen Hill, KEHA President or Sharon Wood, KEHA 1st Vice President with any questions.

Respectfully,
Karen Hill, KEHA President
