January Notes

Our next meeting is on January 18 at 7:00 p.m. at Cementation.  Instead of a guest speaker as indicated in our brochure, we will have the opportunity to ask questions about recent developments within our national and international organizations as well as socialize, making up for our cancelled Christmas social.

The silent auction, held on November 16 (photos above), raised a little over $1600 for scholarships.  For additional photos of the auction and other 2016-17 events, click here.
