It’s nearing the time of year when we start thinking about the following year in our club leadership. We will be asking for volunteers to form an Election Committee. The election is held in November with the new officers effective in January.

Fall Picnic

Would anyone like to volunteer to plan a fall club picnic and/or a holiday party? We will be asking for volunteers at our next meeting.

T-Shirts

We can also order more t-shirts. The company reached out to me to let me know it’s not too late to order again. Let me know if you would be interested in that project. I will provide you with the information.
