We hope all our members are staying healthy and safe! I'm sure you have all read about the federal government's proposed $2 trillion stimulus package offering relief for employees negatively impacted by the virus, as well as employers hit hard by loss of revenue. Our Board members with expertise in these areas are carefully studying all the details to see what assistance may be available for the club during this temporary shutdown. None of us know how long this pandemic will last or when the Club will be able to re-open, so it's difficult to prepare any meaningful plans. We just want our members to know that we are actively working on this every day, continuing to find ways to cut operating costs and still maintain our facilities, protect our members and our staff. We are very appreciative of your continued support through all of this, your loyalty to San Jose and to our employees. We hope to have some more definitive answers to our financial concerns within the next week, as more information is made available about the stimulus package and how it can help our Club. We ask for your patience for a little longer, and we will keep communicating daily, even if it's only to say -— yes, we still have golf and tennis open! Our Board is having weekly meetings to address this ever-changing environment. Thank you for being a caring member of our San Jose family. Better days are coming, stay with us and we'll all get through it together!
