* EDUCATION will be inside with seats socially distanced.
* EXPO will be held outside

Masks and social distancing of 6ft will be mandatory in order to adhere to regulations we have been asked to follow. Vendors will be set up on a playing field but are encouraged to bring sunshades to keep out of the heat.
�We are working to make sure we don’t over heat during the expo, and with that in mind, we are beginning the education at 9:00 am (Which is earlier than we typically hold our education).

The Firm thanks Senior Paralegal Joseph Olivares for his service in the United States Navy from 1973-1977, serving with the "Rough Raiders" Naval Aviation group known officially as ATKRON VA-125.
