MEMBERS: A gathering is coming soon. James Schiff has secured a place to picnic on July 21 from 5 PM to 9 PM at Long Leaf Park. It'll be a great time for us to come together in fellowship, have a meal and just relax in hopefully some sunshine, a gentle breeze and comfortable temps. Put the date and time on your calendar. ...come one, come all. There will be some surprises too! We will have several hundred bucks worth of prizes, raffles, gift cards and who knows what else we'll drum up by then. So, no excuses! It may be warm but who cares. We will send more details later....BTW it will be BYO eats and drinks. I'll get the rules of the road out to you soon. I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of you.
