April Meeting Will Be VIRTUAL

We know the last few weeks have been challenging for many of you. Meeting in person isn’t possible or even wise at this time so we are hosting Virtual Meetings just like many other groups have started doing. Don’t let that scare you away! We are trying to make this as easy as possible.

Registration is required. It’s an extra step but we feel it’s necessary to deter troublemakers that have caused problems for other groups.

Use this link to register ahead of time for the meeting:
