February Meeting and Workshop Cancelled

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in News

Hello everyone,

We hate to do this, but the board has made the decision to cancel this Saturday’s (February 21,2015) general meeting and Sunday’s (2/22/15) workshop.

We are siding with caution and safety due to the up coming snow storms. It is not so much getting to the meeting as it is going home that concerns us.

The program and workshop to be presented by Sara Rockinger has been rescheduled for May, 2015. The workshop coordinator, Carol Timblin, will be in touch with those registered for the workshop.

Stay warm and safe,
Annie Scherer
