End of Year Announcements

Judge Ruffin Photo Reveal

Due to the increasing numbers of persons infected by COVID 19 and the uncertainty of the effect of our exposure over the holiday weekend, and in consideration of the age of many of Judge Ruffin’s colleagues, neighbors and friends who will attend, you are encouraged to attend the dedication of the Ruffin portrait on Tuesday, January 4th virtually.  The link to the live stream coverage is:  https://youtu.be/2CI-pI2TYSE

We regret that this recommendation is necessary, and look forward to the time when these precautions are only a memory.
