Hi all -- Looks like Spring has finally sprung!!!! Oh the weeds in my flowerbeds......yuck
Meeting this month (April 9th) will be a picnic - pack your own lunch, beverage, snack, etc. The club will not be providing anything -- we'll be down at Bayport pavilion from 10-2....hopefully the love bugs and/or sand flies will not invade. We'll have a quick meeting - then open discussion for next year - field trips, speakers, chairmanships for committees, etc. Then just meet/greet and have fun...
