It is sometimes necessary to cancel a meeting, an activity or worship due to inclement weather. If we do cancel, an email will be sent to the Congregation; a message will be left on the Temple phone and will appear on local media. Because many of our congregants have to travel a distance to reach the Temple it is imperative that we give serious consideration to these members. At no time do we want to put any of our members in peril. The safety of each and every individual is the focus of our decision to cancel. Please be understanding and stay home when conditions warrant doing so.
