Election of Officers: We will start the afternoon off with the election of Officers for the coming year.

Dinner: The Club provides roasted turkey and ham. The rest is potluck and members bring their favorite side dish, dessert or drinks.

We will followup our great meal with a rock and gem auction.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!
