Thursday, October 28, 2021
6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
We are meeting in-person
at the library next to the office!
This will be a test of who is really reading the newsletters. We hope you can join us at our next Business Meeting. We need to seriously consider moving out of the office.
The rent has tripled, but more importantly participation is way down. Can we really justify spending $300 on office rent? We need you to show up at our business meetings and participate – or why do we need an office?
Looking forward to seeing you on the 19th or 28th of October.
