These usually take place once each month (June, July and August excepted) selected in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows.
In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place at people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity. Directions will be posted and sent out each month with the host's address. Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website.
