Upcoming meetings

    Change of meeting dates
    Because of a library scheduling problem concerning our usual second Saturdays of September, October, and November, we have had to change to the THIRD Saturdays of those three months and only from 11:30 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. because of a later scheduled group. We are very pleased that our scheduled speakers were able to change to their new dates to accommodate us and hopefully in 2018 we will be able to return to our former dates and times.
