The next meeting will be March 1st at 7 PM via Zoom (online video). The guest speaker will be a surprise. There is another guest speaker lined up for April, I hope.

The virtual meeting will start on March 1st at 6:45PM to work through any issues and rag chew to fill in the dead air.. The guest speaker will be first on the agenda.
