1st of the Year Women's Club Breakfast a Success (May 7)
About 70 folks stopped by HQ between 8 - 10am to have some good food and conversation. There was a buzz in the air (and it wasn't carpenter bees or wasps). It was great to see both familiar faces and meet new friends. (Click on a picture thumbnail to see and scroll through the full-size pictures.)

HQ Deck Removal- Helping Hands on Deck
Thanks to Ray Fulk, Ray Gasperson, Sean and Miller Hogan, Steve King, Clayton Larrison, Dick Perlmutter, and Chris Reynolds for their hard work in deck removal and multiple trips to the dump on April 23. The deck had been in place for many years and served us well. Unfortunately, the deck was no longer safe. In the end, more green space and outdoor gathering will be possible.
