As reported here before, the weather took its toll at the annual picnic, so it was decided that the auction should be postponed to allow more members to participate. Why?? *This is a big fundraiser for our club, and we need lots of participation for it to be successful!
You spoke, we listened!! Marvin’s threading program is still going to be in July!! (It was reported that Marvin’s threading program would be postponed for the auction, but thanks to Marvin and Carl for rearranging AGAIN!) We will shorten the business meeting to get us home at a reasonable hour. IT ’ S A DOUBLE HEADER NIGHT!! PROGRAM + AUCTION
