I really don't know what to tell you. If you enjoy the discussions continue to attend. By being so rude to the four of you the nature of the club has changed.
It seems rude that your book club did this. My book club is a different sort. Once a month, we finally ended meetings on Zoom last month. Our secretary had the courage to tell anyone who was unvaccinated to stay away. We don't usually celebrate birthdays and just have a snack after the discussion.
Book clubs have become very popular the in the last few years. Maybe you can find another club that meets on line. I had to try a few book clubs before I found one that I liked. In one I was the only person who read the book. Now that people have discovered Zoom there are probably even more that meet that way. The L.A. Times even has one.
