The next couple months is the time to start bringing both your show and donation trees into our monthly meeting, to be reviewed by 'K'.

Club Board Meeting Site - Your Board of Directors meets once a month (usually on the first Tuesday).  For the last few years we have met in a classroom at a local school.  However, as of September, the school district has raised the fee for classroom use by 1500%!  Needless to say, we are now looking for a new home.  If you know of a meeting space that we can use for about an hour and a half once a month, please tell a board member.
