It has been a very hot summer & I hope you are all well. It is hard to believe that it is time for us to get together & start preparing for our year. Our first meeting is September 3rd at 6:00 pm. Please come for a light dinner and dessert.  Bring your ideas for crafts or any other idea for fundraising.  Don’t forget your dues and if you want to bring a friend that might be interested in joining our family that would be great.   See you soon,  Eileen
