One thought on “News & Goods from the September Meeting

  1. So is the meeting changed to Wed in Nov? I had already scheduled a Dr appt for that Wed. Isn’t the library more likely to actually be closed on Veterans day the 11th than on Monday the 9th our for-real meeting date? Just let me know which is the right date.
