Upcoming Meeting Changes: 
 
Beginning again in 2019, any months with 5 Mondays, we will hold an afternoon social instead of our normal 12:00pm Monday meeting.  This will NOT be held on December 31st, due to the New Year Holiday.  
 

Our July social evening was at Neil's Wine House.  A great time was had by current members, potential members, spouses and friends!

5th Meeting of the Month
This year, we are trying something different!  
When there are 5 Monday's in the month, we will be holding a night meeting/social instead of the meeting at noon for that week.  Your quarterly dues will cover the food expenses, as they would at the Monday noon meeting.  You may bring your spouse/significant other or a potential member! 
 
Mark your calendars for the night meeting instead of the noon meeting on Monday: 
 October 29 (Location and time TBD)
We will NOT have a night meeting on December 31 due to the holiday
