April 2020 classes cancelled

April 2020 classes cancelled

CCAL Members & Facilitators,
Your CCAL Board of Directors hope that you’re well and getting what you need in the way of supplies and support in these challenging times.
Monday, your Board unanimously agreed (via email vote), to cancel all April CCAL classes and the April Board meeting.
Our preliminary look at the possibility of having some kind of distance learning substitute for classes has shown that there are substantial difficulties for both facilitators and members. If the virus necessitates additional cancellations, we may look at that possibility again.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or the office:
Bob P.

March 2020 Spring Meeting & March classes cancelled


Dear CCAL Members and Facilitators,

In light of the average age of our members, and the advice provided by the CDC, AARP, other advisory groups, and the return to campus this weekend of 5,400 SUNY students, your Board of Directors, has voted that it’s prudent for us to cancel the Spring Meeting scheduled for this Sunday March 15, 2020 at the Otsego Grille, Morris Hall, SUNY. 

The Summer/Fall 2020 Catalogs will be mailed to members.

Secondly, the Board has also voted that the remaining five March 2020 CCAL classes (one meets 3 times), will be canceled. Members will be kept apprised of any rescheduling.

Please know that we are taking these actions with the health and well being of all of our members in mind.


Bob Parmerter, President
