Postponement of 10. year celebrations and other activities

Dear Herodot Third Age Academy (H3A)  members,

Responding to the increased safety concerns expressed by our members  following the announcement of a pandemic by the world health organization and of the first detected case of Coronavirus in Turkey the H3A management board has met today and decided to postpone all our activities. Therefore our 10 year celebration program and all other activities including group trips, conferences etc…are postponed  until the end of summer  2020.

The evolution of the disease in other countries suggests that, especially for our age group,  we cannot perform group activities in full safety.  

Best regards
M. Samir Atasi
Chairman of the Board
