Next Business Meeting is June 19
All members and attenders are asked to consider attending the next business meeting which will be the last until September. May's meeting for business brought about the need to table decisions based on not enough people in attendance. Also, there are financial matters regarding the new roof that need discussing. As always there will be a potluck lunch.
