If you have already paid, PLEASE CHECK THE LIST and make sure your name is on the list. (See list.) If there are any mistakes, call Lynda right away! There is absolutely no paying at the door. We have a caterer who is serving each paid luncheon plate individually as opposed to a buffet.

Dues will not be taken at this meeting so our Treasurer can have a welcome break.

There WILL NOT be a Mini Art Show at this meeting, nor a "raffle".

There will be no meetings in June or July. Pay your dues for the next fiscal year (June-May) at the August meeting.

Just for fun ... it is dress-up time.
