Club meetings are held monthly from January to November. Our meetings are fun, friendly, interative and educational. We strive to have a variety of speakers, talking on various related subjects. Meetings are open for anyone to come along and check us out, and are followed by supper and a chance to talk with friends, and make new ones. Learn More
