Club Meetings To Be Held Weekly

Club meetings have moved to a weekly schedule this fall.  Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, we will meet virtually by Zoom through December, 2020.  The board will consider live or virtual meetings for January at that time. Meetings will begin at noon each week with three exceptions.  There will be no meeting on Wednesday November 25; December 23 and January 30.  Guests interested in visiting one of the virtual meetings should contact the membership chair listed on the club officer page.  Monthly (and socially-distanced) activities are being planned and announced to members through email.

Monthly social (and socially distanced) events will also be planned starting in October. Club members will receive more information by email within the week.
