Men’s Retreat 2020 | WILL BE RESCHEDULED

March 11, 2020

Dear Cherrydale Men’s Retreat attendees,

As a physician and the chairman of Cherrydale’s Men’s Retreat Committee, who have been eagerly anticipating and preparing for this year’s gathering, I would like to update you on the status of the retreat.

We have been monitoring and watching the issues related to the coronavirus on a daily basis. Based on the rapid spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and other new developments, such as the World Health Organization declaration of it as a pandemic, the Men’s Retreat committee has deemed it impossible to move forward as planned. Therefore, it is with heavy hearts that we have made the difficult decision to postpone the men’s retreat to another time. At the current time, we are looking into when we can reschedule, based on the development of the virus as well as Skycroft’s schedule.

At this time, there is no need to contact Cherrydale to cancel your registration or request a refund. Details and additional information for current registrants will be forthcoming in the next few days to weeks.

We understand the disappointment of those who were dedicated to staying the course, but ultimately, we have a responsibility to our members—and to the communities they serve. In addition to the potential risks associated with a close gathering, as well as the increasing travel advisories and restrictions, we recognize that our members are needed close to their homes.

We are grateful to everyone who has worked tirelessly with the planning of this year’s event and who will continue to assist with next steps for this cancelled event and the postponement. Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at

Thank you for your understanding.


Dr. Alphonse Mehany
