Westboro Beach Genealogy Meetup - NOT

Around this time of year for the past few years, there's been an informal genealogy meetup at the Westboro Beach Cafe, usually at noon on a Sunday. Folks look forward to it.

Although the cafe is now open with plenty of distancing when I was there early on Wednesday afternoon, and the most recent Stage 3 declaration for Ottawa takes effect on Friday, this year I'm not promoting a meeting.

Most meetup attendees are in a more vulnerable age bracket. The beach attracts a crowd less likely to adhere to social distancing, and there's the inability to eat and drink while wearing a mask.
