Tonight’s MRA General Meeting CANCELED

Tonight’s MRA General Meeting CANCELED

It’s no surprise that the most Google’d term in the past 24 hours has been “Bomb Cyclone” and we just happen to have one rolling through the Denver metro area today. Due to the impending snow fall and high winds in the forecast for today’s blizzard, the MRA Board of Directors has canceled this evening’s General Meeting. Your safety is our greatest concern and we don’t want you attempting to drive in today’s storm to attend an MRA meeting.
