The North Carolina Poetry Society has canceled its meeting, which was scheduled for Saturday, March 14, at Weymouth Center for the Arts and Humanities.

“Many of our attendees are in the at-risk age group, anyone can have an underlying health problem and some have children at home,” says a spokesman. “In short, the risks to our members and their families are too great for us to host the event as planned.”

The organization intends to host the meeting as an online event via Zoom.

“All are welcome to join us in real time at 10 a.m March 14 and participate, including an opportunity to read a poem during the open mic,” says the spokesman. “You can join Zoom for free.”

The meeting ID is 344-221-635, and the meeting password is 331506.

“In addition, we will have the video available on our Facebook pages for our members to watch,” says the spokesman.
