UWIA Social Event Postponed

Due to the ever-growing concern over the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus, the UWIA has decided to postpone the social event scheduled this evening at Whittier College, AJ Villalobos Hall.

 Although the UWIA thinks this is an important event to help in the development of the association and the uptown district, it is more important not to risk the health and wellbeing of the community.  An announcement will be made once a new date is determined.

We are sorry for the late notice, but hope you understand it is best to be cautious at this time.
