Upcoming Meetings

March 2020 Meeting – Canceled

As they say, it is better to err on the side of caution.  So, we are stepping back and taking a deep breath to see what to do next. No meeting on this fourth Wednesday of the month, which would be March 25.   Since most of our members are over 70, it seems the thing to do.  I certainly will miss being with you.

Please give me your feedback.  We hope to be able to resume with the April 22 meeting.

We have a new film on the environment that Susan Sporl found for us.  The title is  Earth, Air, Water, Fire:  The Human Element, so that would be appropriate for Earth Day and for a month focusing on the environment.

I look forward to hearing from you.
