Our December meeting / Christmas Dinner was very festive.  Please welcome Chuck as President, Tina as Secretary and Steve as Treasurer.  Glenn is returning as Vice president.  A big thanks to Randy, Mark and Don for the past 2 years of service.    

Our Christmas Dinner included a presentation on MPC’s by John Watta, the opening of door prizes, which included 3 gold pieces and silver coins. Dave ended the night with his annual raffle.  A special thanks goes out to Cathy Poirior for arranging our dinner at the Tuscan Hall despite many obstacles she encountered.

This year we are scheduling our monthly meeting topics and presentations by members.  If you want to present please sign up.  It’s a great way to give back to the club while experiencing a personal achievement in research and presentation skills.

Annual dues are to be paid this month:  Adults $15, Youth $7.50
