The Sheraton is probably wanting a contract and deposit based on "business as usual". For the entire country it is not business as usual. More than likely they are not going to be filling those meeting rooms and hotel rooms with other reservations a year in advance during this time of crisis. So I suggest we hold tight, Carolyn can explain our reasoning and if the Sheraton finds other takers for that time frame, I guess that is the risk we take. Hopefully in a few more months we will have a better feel for what is happening. I thank all of you for the prayers and thoughts for my family and I offer mine to the rest of you that are affected by the war. The uncertainty is difficult for all of us to live with, whether it is our children, spouses, siblings or friends that are called to serve. Take care and above all... STAY SAFE! Jo Hogle
