National Clothesline
The Southwest Drycleaners Association is planning to host a membership meeting and seminar
in July — emphasis on the word planning. Nothing is set in stone in the Covid Age.
For now, the group is asking its members to save the date. As for travel arrangements — those
can wait — until closer to the event, anyway. It is scheduled to take place from July 10 to 11 at
the Lone Star Court in the Domain in Austin, TX.
As of press time, the city of Austin had enacted a Shelter in Place Order set to expire on May
30; Travis County in Texas currently plan to remove its Shelter in Place Order on June 15. That
means Austin should be a viable meeting location in July. Still, this can change at any time so
those who plan on attending should RSVP to the association for the free event, but nobody is
advised to make definite travel plans or hotel reservations yet. 
SDA will inform those who have signed up when to do so.
Those who find themselves ready to return to social events could not ask for a much better
facility. The Lone Star Court is a stylish, boutique hotel offering a retro atmosphere with a
modern twist.
SDA’s event will kick off on Friday evening with a Happy Hour Welcome Reception at 5:30 p.m.
before dinner at the Domain at 7 p.m.
On Saturday morning, there will be breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and an SDA Board meeting at 9
a.m. Following a noon lunch, the seminar will take place at 1:30 p.m.
Look for updates as they become available at SDA’s website at www.sda-dryclean.com.

SDA hopes to meet
in Austin next month
