Next Meeting

We do not meet in August, so our next meeting will be on Monday, September 11th at 6:30 p.m at Hessel Park Church.  The program is yet to be confirmed.  But we continue to communicate with our members and  answer e-mails from non-members, so please feel free to contact us. 

We had a fun time at our annual potluck picnic.  The venue was beautiful, the food was great, and some of us learned a lot about cars.  If you missed it this year, hope you can make it next year.  Thank you to Joanne and  Jim for hosting us.
