Monthly Business Meeting and Program is Rescheduled

The monthly business meeting and program is rescheduled from Wednesday 21 Nov 2018 to Wednesday 28 Nov 2018.

Wednesday 21 November is the day before Thanksgiving and many members stated they would not be in attendance. I also will not be in attendance the next couple of meetings 14 and 21 Nov – out of town.

It also may be that the Rockford Public Schools will be on holiday the Wednesday, 21 Nov 2018, before Thanksgiving.

See you at the 28 November 2018 meeting and program.
